Graduation and Commencement

ҹɬƵ degree students may graduate after completing their degree requirements in the fall, winter or summer semesters. However, only one official graduation and commencement ceremony will be held in the spring. At this ceremony, any students who already received their diplomas on the degree conferral dates listed below are eligible to attend and cross the stage with their peers. All students who had degrees conferred the previous fall or summer will be listed in the official spring graduation program.

To be considered for graduation, students must submit an application to graduate–available for download on the Forms Portal page along with a $50 graduation fee by the published deadline.
