Commencement Eligibility

A Degree Application allows students the privilege to participate in the May Commencement.  Only those seniors whose current registration will bring them within 8 credits of completing all degree requirements by March 1st may participate in commencement ceremonies.

All students who have submitted a Degree Application will receive an audit of their degree requirements via email by March 1st.

Students will receive the message stating one of the following:

  • The student is on track to graduate, or
  • The student is eligible to participate in Commencement but has outstanding requirements, or
  • The student is not eligible for Commencement

If a student is NOT eligible to participate in Commencement it will be clearly noted in the email.  The email will include suggestions for the student to become eligible for commencement ceremony.

Those students who are not eligible for the upcoming commencement ceremonies will be invited to participate the following May if:

the student graduates in August

the student graduates in December

the student meets the minimum eligibility requirements at that time

If you do not receive an audit of your degree requirements via email by March 1st, please contact the Registrar's Office.
