Degrees are conferred at the annual commencement at the end of the spring term. Only students who have completed all degree requirements and a minimum of 120 credits may participate in the graduation ceremony. Students completing degree requirements in October (after Summer Session) or January (after the fall term) will receive a letter of completion to be used in lieu of a diploma until the next commencement exercises. Diplomas will be available at the Office of the Registrar after the commencement date. All desired undergraduate credentials must be earned prior to the date of graduation.
