Exodus Grad Fair for Graduating Seniors

The Exodus Grad Fair is an event for traditional undergraduate seniors to "check out" with university offices prior to graduating and to pick up their cap and gown and commencement tickets.

Spring 2024 graduates are invited to Exodus on Wednesday, March 20, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Canyon Commons 102-103.

All graduating students will receive an email from the registrar's office the week of Exodus with details about online tasks you'll need to complete either prior to Exodus or at the event.

If you're not able to attend Exodus, please stop by the registrar's office at your convenience after Exodus to pick up your regalia or email registrar@georgefox.edu the week of March 18 to designate someone else to pick up your things for you.

Caps and gowns are ordered for all graduating students toward the beginning of the semester based on size information provided by the student on their Application for Graduation. Students are asked to wear only University issued regalia at commencement.
