Commencement Policy

2019 graduate adjusts his bowtie


In order to participate in the Commencement exercise, a student must be enrolled in ALL remaining required courses by the last day of the add/drop period during that semester.


In addition, a student who is enrolled in all required classes in the spring commencement semester but fails only one required course during that last semester will be allowed to participate in the commencement exercise. Withdrawal from any required courses will prevent the student from participating in the commencement exercise.


This change in the marching policy does not affect the degree conferral policy. Degrees will continue to be conferred in May, August and December.
