Participation in Commencement Ceremonies

To participate in Commencement exercises, a student must have registered for and remain enrolled in all required courses necessary for graduation prior to or during the semester in which he/she intends to graduate. Students who do not graduate at the close of the term for which they applied must re-apply for graduation. Changing the date of graduation after graduation plans have been set may result in a change of graduation fee. The student must not have “holds” imposed by any department or office to participate in the Commencement ceremonies or graduate. All course work must be completed before the last day of the semester during which the student intends to graduate. Grades of IP will prevent the conferral of a degree until the next conferral period.

Students who complete degree requirements during the summer months graduate in August and participate in the December Commencement ceremonies.
