Graduation Rehearsal

Date: Wednesday, May 13
Time: 5 p.m.
Location: Quad in the center of campus

Questions? Contact the Student Affairs Office at or 610-606-4680.

Graduation Rehearsal is a mandatory exercise that will prepare you for what to expect during the Commencement Ceremony.

At Graduation Rehearsal, we will review how to dress in your academic regalia, the timing for Commencement, name pronunciation, and answer any questions graduates may have. The Senior Class President will also briefly address the class.

If you have family and friends on campus during the rehearsal, they may want to take this opportunity to shop at the Bookstore or walk around our beautiful campus.

Graduating students must RSVP using the Commencement Attendance Form on MyCedarCrest under the “Student Affairs” tab no later than April 12, 2015.

Graduation Rehearsal is anticipated to last approximately 90 minutes.
