Black Graduation 2014: Registration

The Black Graduation ceremony serves as an intimate gathering for family, friends, and members of the black Columbia community to celebrate the culture and accomplishments of the undergraduate graduating class.

These can include OMA Graduation Cords, King's Crown awards, academic departmental honors, organization awards, and being selected as a senior marshal. Since some of these awards may not be known when you register, we recommend you log-in so that you are able to modify your submission at a later date.
