It is important to us that we correctly pronounce your name when it is called during our commencement ceremony.

To help us do so, please send a short recording of the pronunciation of your name, which we will reference when preparing for the ceremony.


We recommend using a recorder app on your phone, then sharing the recording with us.  Instructions for doing so are below.


Recordings should be sent to CommencementSubmit@syr.edu.  Please include the full spelling of your name in the subject line.
