Petitioning to Walk in Commencement Ceremony
Criteria for Petitioning to Walk in Commencement Prior to Degree Completion
A student may petition the SOS Committee for the privilege to participate in commencement without having graduated if:
- The student is within two (2) courses of completing graduation requirements, and
- The student is in good academic (2.00 GPA) and social standing, and
- The student submits his/her petition to the Registrar, chair of the committee, by no later than the Wednesday after Spring Break.
Students who anticipate graduating but fail a required course will not be allowed to participate in commencement. The submission deadline has been extended so that if a student finds him/herself in a position of possibly failing a required course, he/she has time to withdraw from the course and still submit the petition in a timely manner.
