How do I know if my name will be in the Program?

  • Students who applied for fall 2016, spring 2017 and summer 2017 graduation by the deadline, March 15, will have their name included in the spring 2017 Commencement Program.

  • Students still completing graduation requirements in the upcoming fall 2017 semester will be included in the spring 2018 Commencement Program.

The ceremonies are planned according to the following guidelines:
