If you are eligible for the ceremony and have not already submitted a pronunciation, the deadline to submit name pronunciations is Friday, April 26, 2013. There will be no pronunciations added after this date. In the past there has been a pronunciation table at commencement rehearsal but not this year due to the time frame of other commencement deadlines.
If your name is pronounced in a special way, please phonetically type the pronunciation of your name and email this information to your graduation auditor (see below). Syllables should be separated by dashes and stressed syllables should be capitalized. (ex: Raul Gonzalez : rah-OOL gon-SAH-les) For help with phonetics, see the guide here: Pronunciation Guide
Please note: This request is not for names with obvious pronunciations.
