1. Complete your application for graduation through the Registrar’s Office and make sure all of your PAWS info (address, etc.) is accurate.

2. Check your FSU email for an email from commencement@frostburg.edu inviting you to set up a login with the FSU's Marching Order site. After setting up login, you can access your Marching Order web page any time.

Graduates planning to attend Commencement on May 19 must register for the ceremony.

3. Order your cap and gown through the Balfour link you were directed to at the end of that registration page. (Only graduating students have access to this, so we cannot post the link here.)
You can choose to ship to the University Store, Hagerstown campus, or to your home. Orders placed after April 17 cannot be guaranteed to arrive in time for the ceremony.

4. Continue to check your FSU email and the Commencement web site (https://www.frostburg.edu/commencement/) for important updates and further details.

5. Bring your cap & gown to commencement with you on Thursday, May 19 to line up in the practice gym in PE Center lower level 90 minutes before your ceremony time. Your name card (and gold Honors tassel, if applicable) will be given to you upon arrival at the practice gym. You must have this name card to hand to the name reader as you cross the stage.
