Adult learner cords will be available

The Office of Online & Adult Learning would like to congratulate seniors that are graduating in the 2023 spring and summer semesters. Any adult learner graduating with a bachelor’s degree is eligible to receive and pick up a cord for graduation.

Cords for in-person students can be picked up in Grace Wilkie Annex from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Monday, April 24 to Wednesday, April 26. Students should be prepared to show their Shocker ID at pick-up.

Students enrolled in a fully online program can pick up a cord from the Office of Adult Learning (OAL) at the times above or cords can be mailed to students as well. Students must be in a fully online program to receive a cord by mail. To request a cord by mail, students must fill out an online form.

For questions or those who need to pick up a cord at a different time, reach out to the OAL at 316-978-8325 or email at
