Private and Military Ceremonies

Commencement procession

Private Ceremonies

If you are unable to attend our annual ceremony, you may want to plan your own ceremony. In a private ceremony, you may have an official – a commander, supervisor, etc. – conduct the ceremony. We will provide you with a ceremonial diploma, a university press kit, and an optional ceremony script that will assist your presenter during the ceremony. To request a packet, please complete the online form.


Private military ceremony

Military Ceremonies

Many military installations hold joint recognition ceremonies to honor graduates in and around their communities. For inquiries or more information, please contact an AMU or APU representative in your area.
