Walkers at Commencement

“Each year there are a small number of students who have not fulfilled all of the requirements for May graduation but who wish to participate in commencement exercises with their entering class. Students who have only three or fewer courses remaining to fulfill the requirements for graduation, or who can complete the degree requirements before the beginning of the next Fall Semester, may petition to participate in the graduation ceremony. The names of all such students throughout the University will not be included in the commencement program until the following May, after they have in fact been graduated.  Students may participate in only one commencement ceremony.”
