Students who are not officially graduating but would like to participate in the graduation ceremony must abide by the updated Graduation Participant Policy. Effective with the spring 2016 semester, students are eligible to participate in commencement if they will:
1) complete all degree requirements by/in the same semester they apply to graduate, or
2) complete all degree requirements within the next adjoining semester with no more than one academic requirement remaining.
For more information regarding the Graduation Participant Policy and the difference between “Participating [walking across the stage]” and “Graduating [receiving a diploma]” in the commencement ceremony please visit the commencement website.
