What is MarchingOrder and how I do I access my personalized slide?

MarchingOrder is a software that personalizes in-person and virtual celebrations. When you watch the virtual celebration your name, your photo and personal quote (if you choose to submit one) and major(s) will be displayed on a slide. Aside from displaying your name on the screen during the celebration, MarchingOrder has a search function to find your personal slide. MarchingOrders gives you the capability to download your slide and share with family and friends!

The MarchingOrder registration process is a two-step process. The first step is to apply for graduation. Please note, graduation is different from Commencement. Graduation refers to the process of applying for completion of your degree/certificate program with the registrar. If you have not yet applied for graduation through CUNYFirst, then you will not get a MarchingOrder email. Please check your preferred email on CUNY First before you apply for graduation.  The deadline to apply for graduation for the Spring semester is March 31, 2021.

The second step, is to register for MarchingOrder, using the email link sent to you.  The email with next steps for MarchingOrders is send to your  preferred email listed on CUNYFirst. After you have applied for graduation, AND been certified by the registrar’s office, you will receive an email to participate in the 2021 Celebration.

Once you received the email with link to log into your personal MarchingOrder portal, please create your slide. Your slide may include a photo, personal quote as well as your majors/minors/honors based on GPA. Please follow the instructions to record your name phonically. MarchingOrders also records each student’s name. Please speak clearly and slowly when saying your name.
