Congratulations May, August, and December 2020 Graduates!

All Class of 2020 graduates can receive a commencement box delivered directly to their home prior to the virtual ceremonies on Saturday, December 12.

The Class of 2020 will receive several congratulatory items in the commencement box to celebrate their academic accomplishments. Each commencement box will contain a congratulations letter, information regarding the virtual ceremonies, a diploma certificate holder, two official commencement programs, information about the Alumni Association and other UNCW keepsakes. Graduates who received an academic distinction through the Office of the Registrar will have their distinction cord included in the commencement box.

May and August Graduates – Provide your Updated Address


May and August graduates were asked to complete a Commencement Box Request Form to ensure that the University had an updated address on file to mail too. The initial deadline to request a box was Friday, October 30. If you missed the initial deadline, you can still request a box below. However, with a late submission, we cannot guarantee you will receive your box before your commencement date. 

Completing the Commencement Box Request Form will also update your alumni record with the University.
