Special Person Designation

All graduates can designate a "special person" who has been instrumental in helping them achieve their higher education goals. This individual's name will be read along with the student's name as he or she walks across the stage at the Commencement ceremony.

Students will be able to submit their Special Person Designation beginning Tuesday, March 3, 2020 within the Commencement Tab and will be available until Thursday May 7, 2020.

  • Log into myRedDragon
  • Select the Commencement Tab at the top
  • Select the Special Person Designation link

While we would like to be able to read all names and entries, note that you are restricted to one to two people or groups for this honor.

Only pre-printed information will be read. Handwritten alterations to the special person line will not be read.

If you need to make a change from your submitted special person designation, go to myRedDragon and access ‘review existing application’. This is located in the Registrar channel on the student tab under the degree conferral section. You will then be able to make a change. Changes must be made by May 4. No handwritten changes to your reader card will be read by our Readers.
