Commencement

The Graduate School will confer doctoral and master's degrees on Sunday, May 24, 2020.

Graduate students intending to complete this academic year should follow the essential steps to prepare for Commencement and pay close attention to anouncements from the Graduate School.

Beginning in Fall of 2019, graduate students in terminal degrees are eligible to have degrees conferred, and to receive their diploma, at three different times during the academic year: October, February and May. See the Registrar’s website for full details.

Students must complete an "Application to Graduate.” This application, which is made available by the Office of the Registrar, enables you to list your name as you would like it to appear on your diploma and the Commencement program. 

There will continue to be only one Graduate School Commencement ceremony in May. October and February graduates are welcome to participate. The Graduate School will reach out in late January 2020 to the email address recorded on your Application to Graduate, with instructions for registering to attend and participate.
