Commencement Policy

The University holds Commencement exercises each fall and spring term. A student must have completed all requirements for a degree or must be enrolled in courses which will complete degree requirements in order to participate in Commencement exercises. A student completing degree requirements in the summer term may participate in the preceding spring Commencement exercise provided that s/he has submitted an application for graduation by the published deadline and that no more than 9 credit hours are required for degree completion beyond spring enrollment. Summer degree recipients who did not participate in the preceding spring commencement may participate in the following fall Commencement exercises.

Once a student has participated in Commencement exercises s/he will not be eligible to participate in future ceremonies for the same degree.
