When enrolling for the intended graduation term, a student must notify the University Registrar of the student’s intent to graduate. The University Registrar will notify the student’s dean (or the dean’s designee), who will determine the student’s graduation status. If approved, the dean (or the dean’s designee) will inform the University Registrar of the degree to be awarded. The University awards degrees only at the conclusion of the fall semester, spring semester, or summer session; however, there is only one commencement ceremony each year in May.
