Students have already received an email from Jefferson which contains a Survey Gizmo link specifically designed for each graduate to RSVP. If you cannot find this email in your inbox, check your junk mail or deleted items boxes. Also, you should be able to find the email by an inbox search using the word “Jefferson Graduate.”
If you cannot attend, we ask that you open the link to let us know so that we can get an accurate count for all students and their families.
We won't be using physical tickets for entry. This process will be done digitally.
