Academic Information

Each student is personally responsible for understanding and completing all requirements for an academic degree. While the academic advisor will assist the student with this process, the advisor will not assume responsibility for these activities.

During the ceremony each graduate will be presented a diploma cover. Graduates will receive diplomas by mail. Diplomas will be mailed approximately six weeks after graduation.

Except as listed below, no student will be allowed to walk in Commencement unless they have completed all graduation requirements.  We will allow students who have a documented ability to complete all graduation requirements in the May and Summer terms to walk with the approval of the Academic Affairs Office. These students must be registered for the May and Summer courses.

Please refer to the University Catalog for Graduation Requirements
