UNIVERSITY POLICY REGARDING DOCTORAL STUDENTS PARTICIPATING IN COMMENCEMENT*

Doctoral students must submit the Dissertation Defense Report showing the dissertation has been defended successfully to the Office of Records no later than one week before the first scheduled university Commencement ceremony in order to participate in any college/school ceremony.  The Office of Records and Registration will send a list of all doctoral students who have not defended their dissertations to each academic dean immediately after this deadline has passed. The Dean will inform these students that they will not be allowed to participate and the Dean will invite them to participate in a Commencement Ceremony taking place in a later semester after they have met all requirements for their degree. Doctoral students who do not participate in Commencement may still graduate and receive their degrees in that term if they complete their defenses and other requirements by deadlines set by Records and Registration.
