Graduating this Spring and Commencement

All students who are completing the requirements for their degree in Spring 2016 should file a Petition to Graduate. If you plan on walking in a graduation ceremony this May, be sure to file your petition by February 8, 2016.

The Petition to Graduate is required in order for your degree to be officially conferred (awarded) and posted to your student record after your final course is completed. By visiting our Steps to Graduation website, you can learn more about the petition to graduate, the necessary steps to graduation and even where to purchase your cap and gown.
