Applying for graduation and RSVPing to attend graduation ceremonies are separate but related issues. Applying and paying your graduation fee ensures that your degree will be processed after coursework is complete and certification of your degree is issued. RSVPing for attendance at ceremonies ensures that seating will be made available for you and your guests for the event(s) you will attend. It also ensures tickets will be reserved for those events that require tickets.
Graduates completing coursework in August may opt to participate in ceremonies the May prior to course completion or the December following course completion. This applies to undergraduate candidates and most master degree candidates.
Please be aware that Doctoral candidates must complete all degree requirements in order to participate in the commencement ceremony as outlined on the Graduate College Deadlines. For more information about the deadlines and procedures for graduation, please click here.
