Reminders for Graduates

2024 SPCS Class Gift

We invite members of the SPCS Class of 2024 to contribute to the 2024 SPCS Class Gift. Each year, graduating SPCS students join together to contribute a class gift toward the SPCS Dean’s Impact Fund, which helps support scholarships and contingency funds for students and programs in need.

UROnline Alumni Directory

Once you’ve graduated, we encourage members of each graduating class to create your profile on the University of Richmond alumni directory portal, UROnline. Creating a profile includes you in the SPCS Alumni Directory, where you can hide or make visible any information you’d like.

UROnline is how we stay connected to you, and how you can stay connected with your classmates and fellow graduates. We hope that you’ll keep your email address up-to-date to recieve updates from us. And it’s easy to activate your “email for life” after graduating — visit the Alumni SSO Portal to activate and manage your UR email address.

Preparing for Commencement

Regalia Ordering

Graduation regalia ordering is handled online using the Commencement Regalia page. The deadline to order in time for Commencement is generally in early March. Additional details are communicated via email as they are available.

Attend SPCS Night

Graduating students and a guest are invited to attend SPCS Night, our annual awards ceremony. Academic and service honors are awarded to graduating students during the event. Invitees receive invitations to attend about a month prior to the event. SPCS Night is held the Wednesday evening prior to Commencement.
