The graduation ceremony and the conferring of degrees is conducted at the end of the Spring Semester each year and will include those completing degree requirements at the end of the preceding Fall Semester, as well as the current Spring Semester and the following Summer Semester. Summer Semester graduates will receive their diplomas when all requirements for the degree have been completed. All graduates are encouraged to attend the graduation ceremony. Attendance exceptions will be made by the Dean of the appropriate School and approved by the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Each student is personally responsible for understanding and completing all requirements for an academic degree. While the academic advisor will assist the student with this process, the advisor will not assume responsibility for these activities.
