Graduation is a term often used interchangeably with both degree completion and commencement. Please be aware that graduating seniors must apply for the degree and complete the degree in order to “graduate.” Eligible seniors may participate in the commencement/graduation ceremony. Graduating seniors may request that their names not be included in the printed commencement program.
- When you complete your degree, your transcript will read “bachelor of arts conferred on [date].”
- Your degree is complete when degree requirements have been met, including:
- all necessary application documents have been submitted;
- all coursework approved for your degree program has been completed with a passing grade;
- your University account balance is zero.
- Commencement is the ceremony held in May that celebrates degree completion.
- Participation in the Morris Commencement ceremony is determined according to policy established by the Campus Assembly.
“Students who are within 15 credits of the 120 required for graduation, and who can verify registration in courses that will complete all outstanding credits and requirements, may participate in the ceremony as a graduating senior.”
- You can complete all your requirements and obtain a degree without walking in the commencement ceremony.
