Qualifications for Participation

Bachelor’s and Master's Degrees

Bachelor’s and master’s degree candidates who plan to complete their coursework between December 2022 and by August 2023 are invited to participate in the May 2023 Commencement ceremonies. Under extenuating circumstances, candidates who do not meet this requirement may petition their home college(s) for permission to participate.

Doctoral Degrees

Doctoral candidates must have completed their degrees by April 2023 to participate. 

It is the student’s responsibility to know and fulfill all degree requirements for graduation. Participation in Convocation and Commencement ceremonies does not indicate that degree requirements have been completed.

Students must file a diploma request form on MySlice (and update their addresses). Filing on MySlice activates the certification process and awarding of a degree.
