May and August Graduates: Planning to Walk at the Spring 2020 Graduation Ceremonies?

There are several questions on the graduation process and when students should apply to graduate. There is no application to participate in the graduation ceremonies. However, when you apply to graduate, you are simply stating that you will complete all degree requirements at the end of that term. Therefore, if you have classes to complete in the summer, you would apply for summer graduation. If you are completing your degree requirements in the spring, then you would apply for spring graduation. There is no summer graduation ceremony. All spring and summer graduation applicants are invited to walk at the University Commencement ceremony on Friday, May 15, 2020, and at the School of Business Degree Celebration ceremony on Saturday, May 16, 2020.  

  • Finishing all courses in the spring? –> Apply for spring graduation, walk in May ceremony
  • Finishing all courses in the summer? –> Apply for summer graduation, walk in May ceremony

**As a spring or summer graduate, if you would like for your name to appear in the University Commencement Program, make sure to apply for graduation by February 22, 2020!**
