Commencement

Commencement exercises are held at the close of each regular semester of the academic year. Candidates are eligible to participate only in the commencement exercises at the end of the semester in which they complete degree requirements and may not defer participation to a later date.

Prospective graduates will be permitted to participate in commencement exercises at the end of the semester if they are enrolled in all outstanding courses required for degree completion and have had no class withdrawals. In the spring semester, prospective graduates will be permitted to participate in commencement exercises if they are enrolled in all outstanding courses in one or more summer terms immediately following the spring commencement exercises.

Participation in commencement exercises does not guarantee conferral of degrees. Degrees are conferred only after the Office of the Registrar verifies that all requirements have been met.

All candidates are required to pay the graduation fee regardless of whether they participate in commencement exercises or not.
