Commencement

Obtaining the Diploma

Participation in the graduate Commencement ceremony does not guarantee that a student has earned his/her diploma, nor is it a graduation requirement.

During the ceremony, graduates will be called to the stage, announced as candidates for graduation, and be awarded certificates of congratulations. Diplomas are not distributed at Commencement. To receive the official diploma, graduates must submit an Application for Degree/Diploma to the Office of the University Registrar. Diplomas will be mailed by that office to your home address. Please verify your home address via WebSTAR.
