  The School of Law - Newark 2004-2006 Academic Policies and Procedures Graduation  


Degrees are conferred by the university on the recommendation of the faculty of the School of Law-Newark. Degrees are conferred and diplomas issued at the annual commencement each May or June. A student who completesdegree requirements at another time during the academic year may request an interim certificate for use in lieu of the diploma until the commencement exercises. Requests for interim certificates should be made to the registrar`s office. It is the responsibility of each student to make certain that all the graduation requirements of the law school have been fully met before the graduation date.

Any candidate who is absent from the commencement exercises is asked to notify the campus registrar, in writing, of the address to which the diploma should be mailed in June or July. Graduating students are urged to clear up all outstanding debts prior to graduation so that issuance of the diploma and certification to the bar examiners are not delayed.
