Commencement 2020 has been postponed to the weekend of June 18-20, 2021. A Kettering education takes grit and determination and we are exceedingly proud of the Class of 2020. Many of our graduates had to pivot to virtual learning and the postponement of the commencement ceremony due to the pandemic. The graduates received a direct message from Kettering President Robert K. McMahan.
This postponement left many of our graduates with opened regalia that could not be returned to our third-party provider (Jostens). If you are not planning to walk in the June 2021 ceremony, we are offering reimbursement for the cost of your opened regalia bundle.
- Undergraduate students will be reimbursed for the cost of their cap, gown, and tassel.
- Graduate students will be reimbursed for the cost of their cap, gown, hood, and tassel.
Graduates must submit a copy of their Jostens receipt for reimbursement by December 14.
Many of our graduates have requested yard signs. These are in the process of being created and will be shipped to your address of record.
