Class Day Name Submission and Pronunciation

One of the most memorable Columbia moments for you and your loved ones will be seeing your name in the printed program and hearing it called while you cross the stage at Class Day.

Graduate Information
Please select your school affiliation. SEAS grad students will receive a link to a different form from SEAS Graduate Student Affairs.
Please Enter Your Name as You Would Like for It to be Printed in the Class Day Program

Nicknames and Preferred Names

As referenced above, in the event that you would like for the name that is read aloud to be different than what is printed in the program, this is your opportunity to provide us with your nickname or preferred name in place of or in addition to your legal name. (Example: If your name is Charles Matthews, but everybody calls you “Chet,” we are happy to read your name as Charles Chet Matthews or simply Chet Matthews.)  You may also omit any middle names you wish to not have read aloud.

Keep in mind that this is an important ceremony and has a certain amount of gravitas, so please use discretion and avoid nicknames that may be too informal or unusual.

Please Enter Your Name as You Would Like for it to be Read Aloud on Class Day
