STEP 1: Petition to become eligible for Commencement

In November, seniors (27+ earned credits) will receive an email from the Registrar's Office detailing how to sign up to determine if you are eligible to participate in the Commencement ceremony. 

You must apply and be eligible by March 1st, in order to participate in the ceremony and be eligible for departmental awards and Latin Honors.
