Advising Handbook

Commencement

Attendance at commencement exercises is not required. All students in the senior class can attend the commencement ceremony and exercises, including students who completed their requirements at the end of the preceding fall semester and those who will complete degree requirements in the succeeding summer term or fall semester. 

Students who do not attend their department’s diploma ceremony, or who complete their requirements after commencement, can ask the registrar to mail their diplomas to them. See the graduation page for more information.
