Commencement exercises take place once a year, at the end of spring semester. Students eligible to participate include those who completed graduation requirements in the preceding fall semester, as well as those who are scheduled to complete requirements in the spring semester or those who are scheduled to complete requirements in the summer session following commencement. Candidates must appear in official academic regalia at commencement exercises. Petitions for exceptions to this policy must be submitted to the Provost’s Office.
Utilizing data from official deadlines, the information for the commencement program is finalized in early March—changes, modifications, or updates received after that time may not be included.
The commencement program is not an official list of confirmed graduates or honors awarded. A final audit will determine degree conferral and academic accords.
