KSOE Commencement Guidelines
Please visit the Commencement page for additional information.
Registration is open for Commencement 2020 and Commencement 2021.
All students who are in a KSOE Credential or Degree Program* and expect to complete their program in the academic year are required to register for commencement and pay the $125 Graduate Commencement and Degree processing fee. This processing fee is required regardless of participation in the commencement ceremony.
*For students completing a KSOE Degree and Credential Program simultaneously in the academic year, ONLY complete one Graduate Commencement Registration online. You will only be billed for one fee, $125, to your GaelXpress account.
To complete your program and/or degree, the Graduate Commencement Registration form* for Commencement 2020 must be submitted online no later than Friday, September 11, 2020 and for Commencement 2021 must be submitted online no later than Friday, March 5, 2021. The commencement processing fee will be billed to your GaelXpress account. (To access the registration form, you must be logged in to your "My Saint Mary's" account. If this still poses problems, try a different browser: Mozilla Firefox, Bing, or Safari)
As part of the credential and degree processing, we will run a degree audit to determine if you have registered for all the courses required. If the audit process discovers any issues, you will be notified by your Program Director.
Degree Candidates: After you have submitted the KSOE Graduate Commencement Registration form and have met the program requirements, submit your Degree Verification Application form and all relevant documents. The relevant documents include a final unofficial transcript, a copy of your signed dissertation/thesis/project signature page or proof of passing the comprehensive exam if required by your program, email receipt from ProQuest, and email confirmation of your KSOE Commencement registration.
