Requirements for Participating in Graduation

Commencement is an important celebration of a studentís academic success, as well as an opportunity for family, friends, and future employers to recognize those efforts in a formal manner. Academic credentials are important benchmarks in a studentís career. All students are strongly encouraged to attend commencement. 

Students who successfully complete all graduation requirements and are recommended by their departments will graduate and receive a diploma. 

Students who are within 7 credits of the graduation requirements, have applied to walk or graduate on their application, and have the recommendation of their department may participate as walkers. Although walkers participate in the graduation ceremony, they will not actually graduate until they have successfully completed all the graduation requirements and are so recommended by their departments. Walkers who subsequently complete their degree requirements must apply for a diploma that will be mailed after approval and the next commencement. Walkers have one year to meet the specified requirements.
