The university confers degrees at the end of each term. Commencement ceremonies are held in December and May of each academic year. Commencement is a ceremony – conferral of your degree is contingent upon the successful completion of all graduation requirements as noted in the catalog. In order to participate in the commencement exercises, the student must have earned the requisite credits or be currently enrolled in their remaining required courses immediately prior to Commencement. Please note, for May Commencement, students may be enrolled in Spring Evening and/or Summer 1 Day semester to complete requirements.
