The Graduate School will confer doctoral and master's degrees on Sunday, May 26, 2019.

Graduate students intending to complete in May need to complete the essential steps to prepare for Commencement and pay close attention to anouncements from the Graduate School.

The University can only graduate and generate diplomas for students who file an "Application to Graduate.” This application, which is made available by the Office of the Registrar each January, enables you to list your name as you would like it to appear on your diploma. It must be submitted no later than May 1.

Other essential steps include registering to attend Commencement by May 1 and renting or purchasing academic regalia. The cost of ordering regalia rises after April 15.

Graduating students and their guests will be invited to attend a reception on Saturday, May 25, 2019.
