 Eligibility to Participate in Commencement

Commencement is the campus-wide ceremony recognizing academic achievement. Graduation is the official act of awarding a degree to students who have successfully completed, to the satisfaction of the college or school, the academic requirements necessary to the award of a degree by the University. Participation in commencement does not constitute the award of a degree (graduation) or guarantee thereof.

Commencement ceremonies are held in May and December of each year. Eligibility for participation in commencement ceremonies is dependent upon the completion and submission of a graduation application form and payment of the graduation fee by the posted deadline date(s).

Please refer to the Commencement Participation policy.
