Commencement participation

Students are only allowed to participate in commencement if they are on track to complete their degree requirements by the end of the semester. Students receiving a bachelor's or master's degree in August are eligible to attend June commencement since no ceremony is held in August. 

All degree requirements must be met before doctoral graduates are able to participate in commencement. Doctoral students graduating in summer II are invited to attend December commencement.
