All Columbia University faculty and officers of administration are invited to march in the academic procession at University Commencement. If you would like to process, please register online.

Participants in the academic procession should enter campus through an upper campus gate and assemble at the designated areas in Low Memorial Library by 10:00 a.m. on the morning of University Commencement. Following the degree candidate procession, the academic procession will start at 10:15 a.m., formally beginning the exercises of the University Commencement ceremony.

Full academic attire is required. If you are participating in ceremonies throughout Commencement Week, please contact your department administrator or Commencement coordinator first for instructions on ordering rental regalia. The Columbia Bookstore can also take orders in person if you would like to rent or purchase regalia on your own.
