Spring 2024 Commencement

Information regarding Spring 2024 Commencement will be shared directly with graduation candidates via email and on this page.

The information contained on this web page will help you meet the requirements and deadlines so that you may graduate on time. Please pay attention to deadlines and information contained in this web page as well as that sent to you as failure to do so may result in fees and may prevent you from graduating as you anticipate.

As you near the completion of your degree, you will receive notices from the Registrar's Office encouraging you to contact your academic advisor who, with you, will review your degree requirements to determine when you should apply to graduate. After we receive your application to graduate, we review your academic file to determine that you have met or will meet the requirements for your degree. At that time, all substitution forms must be submitted if not already provided to the Registrar's Office.

If you are an undergraduate student, you must have completed your Community Service by the first week of your final semester.
