Commencement Participation

3685.1 Policy

Commencement ceremonies constitute public acknowledgement that students have completed education requirements of the University.  Students are eligible to participate in the first commencement ceremony following the completion of their course of study.

All exceptions to this policy must be approved by the dean of the appropriate college or school, who will forward approved requests to the Office of the Registrar so that students may be included in commencement ceremonies.  Exceptions shall generally be restricted to mandatory relocation or documented emergency.
