International Center Graduation Reception

Michigan Union
South Lounge
Class of 2024 Graduation Reception

Description: The International Center is excited to celebrate the academic achievement of our international graduates this year!

We hope that graduating international students will join us for a reception in the South Lounge of the Michigan Union (first floor, across from Sweetwater’s) to enjoy a few treats and pick up a graduation cord!

The International Student Graduation Cord is an initiative to showcase the broad impact of international students at U-M. These blue and green cords are only available to international students and symbolize their significant global contributions to our campus, both in and out of the classroom. There is no charge for the graduation cord.

Graduation Cords will be presented to graduates at the International Center Graduation Reception, and are available to all students graduating Spring and Summer 2024. Students who graduated in December 2023 but are walking in this Spring Commencement ceremony can also request a cord. 

If students cannot attend the reception, you can pick up a cord at the International Center April 29-May 3. If this is your case, select the "Pick Up At International Center" option at registration.
