    • If you indicated that you plan to participate in the ceremony, check your CCA email for a Commencement Ticket Request form.
      • Please note:
        • Each questionnaire is individually processed, so your Commencement Ticket Request form may not be available for at least several days – thank you for your patience.
        • Check the email's subject line for your Commencement Ticket Request deadline.

Revise Requests & Follow Up Questions:

  • Please watch your CCA email for follow up questions.
    • If you receive a "Revise Request" task in your Workday inbox for the "Request Process: Commencement Questionnaire", please scroll to the "Comments" section at the bottom for information about what changes need to be made or questions that need to be answered.

Questionnaire Status Check:

  • Confirm if you submitted your Commencement Questionnaire, and check its status.

    • As long as you submitted it, there's no need to resubmit (unless your answers have changed) – we're working on it, and this can take several days since each questionnaire is individually reviewed and processed.
