How will I know if I am eligible to participate?
Degree candidates for November 2015, December 2015, February 2016, May 2016, and August 2016 are eligible to participate in the May 2016 Commencement ceremony.
Completion of degree requirements next Fall (2016) will place you on the May 2017 Commencement list.
To be considered for participation in the 2016 Commencement ceremony, graduate students must have met the 3.0 grade point average minimum requirement at CLU before Spring 2016. Students planning to complete requirements by Summer 2016 and who meet the minimum grade point average requirements prior to the spring term, may be listed as candidates for their degree for the May 2016 ceremony. August candidates should normally be within 6-8 credits of completion of the requirements after the spring term and must be pre-registered for summer school at CLU by April 1, 2016 to be eligible for the May 2016 ceremony.
All students planning to graduate in the summer of 2016 and walk in the May 2016 commencement ceremony are required to take all summer courses at CLU. If students opt to take summer courses outside of CLU, theywill not be eligible for the 2016 ceremony. If required courses are not offered at CLU in the summer, the student will not be allowed to walk; therefore, students must plan accordingly when registering for the Spring 2016 semester.
Additionally, all CLEP exams must be completed by April 1st, 2016 for any student graduating spring or summer of 2016.
