Kent Grad Kickoff 2023

Grad Kickoff is an important event that no graduate should miss because it provides a single setting for graduating students to get everything they will need for graduation. University staff members will be able to answer your questions about Commencement. You will also be able to pick up your cap and gown, honor tassel, diploma frame, order class rings, graduation announcements, and even take graduate portraits.

You may order your commencement-related items in advance of Grad Kickoff and request pickup at any of the three sites (see below) where Grad Kickoff is held. This is done online at the store website: You may also have them shipped to you if you are not able to attend the Grad Kickoff.
