In order to participate in Commencement, students must complete the following steps in order:
- Apply for Graduation via their Student Portal. Please note, if you have already applied for graduation then there is no need to re-apply. You can confirm your graduation application is on file by checking your student portal alerts.
- RSVP to the ceremony by submitting a response on the RSVP & Tickets. The deadline to RSVP for the ceremony is May 5th.
Why Socially-Distanced Commencement?
Commencement enables ASU-Beebe to honor our Spring 2021 graduates in May and celebrate our first in-person event in over a year - while still minimizing the risk of contracting Covid-19 for our students, faculty and staff.
Please see ASU-Beebe's Covid-19 Information Page for the latest updates from the college.
Why is Seating Limited for Commencement?
We desperately wanted to celebrate our 2021 graduates with an in-person commencement program, but we have to balance the ongoing health requirements for social distancing and capacity of our facility. By limiting each graduate to 4-guests they can invite immediate family and other extended friends and family can watch the event on a livestream video hosted on ASU-Beebe's Youtube Channel .
Family and friends will be able to celebrate their student in the live chat during the livestream ceremony.
How do I check to see that my graduation application is on file?
Once a student's application has been submitted, they will receive an email notification and also a web portal alert.
Will I still be able to purchase regalia?
Yes! Brown's Graduation Supplies will be on-campus for planning days, as well as an online storefront where students can order regalia and have it shipped to their home.
What if my question was not answered here?
Please submit your question directly to the Registrar's Office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
