Students are eligible to participate in graduation ceremonies upon completion of all requirements for the degree. Students with extenuating circumstances may request to participate in a graduation ceremony other than the ceremony that is compatible with the semester in which degree requirements are completed by submitting the Request to Walk form. Students participating in the graduation ceremonies will not receive the degree until they have fulfilled all degree requirements. Students receiving degrees in August may walk in May or December. The request form along with specific participation guidelines are found here.

Students who subsequently finish all graduation requirements after the degree conferral date will be awarded their degree at the following degree conferral date. If requested, a degree completion statement can be added to a student's transcript to indicate the date degree requirements were completed and the date the degree will be conferred. Students should see their graduation specialist for additional information.
