Red White and Carolina Blue Graduation

The Office of the Dean of Students invites all military-affiliated graduates to the Red, White, and Carolina Blue Graduation on Friday, May 9, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. The event will take place on campus at the Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History in the Hitchcock Multipurpose Room.

Veterans, active duty service members, National Guard, Reservists, and ROTC commissionees participating in the Spring 2014 commencement exercises are welcome to participate. The program will include light refreshments for the graduates and their guests, followed by the presentation of colors and performance of our National Anthem, remarks from students, administrators, and alumni, and the presentation of Military Honor Cords.

Important Information For Graduates: Please bring your UNC OneCard, statement of graduation, and either a copy of your DD-214 or valid military identification card to confirm your registration for this event. (Statement of graduation: Please obtain a signed statement from your school's graduation coordinator that you are "...on track to graduate based on successful completion of the enrollments in progress and any other degree requirements still pending.") You must be a May 2014 or August 2014 degree candidate to participate. May 2014 graduates must have applied to graduate. When registering, graduates are asked to provide the degree being conferred and their service history, which will be read at the graduation. Each graduate is invited to designate one of their guests to present them with the Military Honor Cord.

The dress code for this event is business casual or uniform optional (service dress/Class A).

REGISTRATION FOR THE EVENT IS NOW CLOSED. Please return in January 2015 for information about next year's Red, White, and Carolina Blue Graduation.
