*Note: The Reporting for the Doctoral Ceremony 2019 document, which contains instructions and station numbers for the morning of June 6, is forthcoming. Please be alert to an email from the Registrar's Office, as well as to this page.


Security information for degree candidates will be finalized in the weeks leading up to graduation. Please visit these pages again as the date approaches. It is also helpful to call the the guest security arrangements to the attention of your families and friends so everyone knows what to expect.

Graduate arrival

On the morning of graduation, you need only your MIT ID and your regalia. You may carry your phone in your pocket. SMALL cross-body personal bags worn under regalia are also ok.
Please remember that it is crucial to report to your station on time—divesting of items not permitted in the procession will delay your check-in. A bottle of water will be under your chair in Killian Court.

Thank you.
