Each year there is a formal commencement exercise held in May. Graduates from the preceding summer and fall, along with spring candidates, are eligible to participate. Students who will complete degree requirements by the end of the following summer may also request to be allowed to participate.
Graduating students must have a graduation application submitted to the Office of Graduation, Employment, and Transfer Services no later than March 1st to have their name published in the year's Commencement Program. No exceptions can be made to this deadline.
Commencement participants are required to wear a cap and gown, which may be purchased through the bookstore.
