When is Commencement and how will I know if I am eligible to Participate?
Commencement will be Friday, May 15, 2015, at 10am in the William Rolland Stadium.
Degree candidates for November 2014, December 2014, February 2015, May 2015, and August 2015 are eligible to participate in the May 2015 Commencement ceremony.
Completion of degree requirements next Fall (2015) will place you on the May 2016 Commencement list.
To be considered for participation in the 2015 Commencement ceremony, graduate students must have met the 3.0 grade point average minimum requirement at CLU before Spring 2015. Students planning to complete requirements by Summer 2015 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 2015 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, 2015 to be eligible for the May 2015 ceremony.
All students planning to graduate in the summer of 2015 and walk in the May 2015 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 2015 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 2015 semester.
Additionally, all CLEP exams must be completed by April 1st, 2015 for any student graduating spring or summer of 2015.
