Attendance Waiver

All undergraduates are required to attend the Commencement ceremony. Attendance exceptions will be made by the Provost/Vice President of Academic Affiars only in cases of extreme extenuating circumstances. If you anticipate such a situation, which will prevent you from attending, please complete the Academic Appeal Form below prior to April 1st for permission to graduate in absentia.
Graduate students are not required but are encouraged to attend the Commencement ceremony.  If your plans to attend the ceremony have changed since you completed the Intent to Graduate form, please notify the University Academic Affiars office,
