University Registrar

Name Cards

Commencement at the University of South Carolina includes a tradition provided by few universities. We honor graduates individually by name during the ceremony.

Each candidate will have a program in his or her seat. Inside that program is a name card, which has your name and seat number at the top. When you are called to stand, please take the card with you and hand it to the announcer who will call out your name.

Commencement Marshals in garnet gowns will be on the floor to assist you during graduation. If your name requires pronunciation notes or your name card is missing from your program, please find a Commencement Marshal for help.
