Eberly College of Business and Information Technology: Business Cording Ceremony

  • Saturday, December 14, 2019 
    1:00 p.m.,  Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex

    Eberly College’s college-wide cording ceremony for undergraduate accounting, finance/LS, ISDS, management (general, international business, and human resource management), and marketing majors takes place each year during spring Commencement. Here is full information about the IUP’s December Commencement ceremonies.


    All College of Business students will be corded with a special business cord by the dean of the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology. These cords will be paid for by the college, and students can then wear them to the university commencement ceremony.


    Parking will be available in the Eberly Lot, the Zink Lot, and the parking garage. You do not need to pay for parking spots on the day of commencement. Please keep in mind that you will be competing for spots with other graduates across campus—plan accordingly.


    Photos are permitted; however, no one will be permitted on the gymnasium floor during the ceremony. Students and family members may take photos from their seats. Pictures may be taken before the ceremony.


    Actual diplomas aren’t issued at college-level ceremonies or at the university ceremony. They will be mailed to your home address only after all grades have been posted and you have been cleared for graduation. Diploma covers will be issued at the university-level ceremony.  Students who are unable to attend the university ceremony can purchase a diploma cover at the bookstore.

    Remember: Hundreds of family members have invested a significant amount of money, time, and concern for their children over these past academic years. This is supposed to be a special time for everyone!
