How will I know if I am eligible to participate?
Degree candidates for November 2017, December 2017, February 2018, May 2018, and August 2018 are eligible to participate in the May 2018 Commencement ceremony.
Completion of degree requirements next Fall (2018) will place you on the May 2019 Commencement list.
To be considered for participation in the 2018 Commencement ceremony, graduate students must have met the 3.0 grade point average minimum requirement at CLU before Spring 2018. Students planning to complete requirements by Summer 2018 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 2018 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 March 15, 2018 to be eligible for the May 2018 ceremony.
All students planning to graduate in the summer of 2018 and walk in the May 2018 commencement ceremony are required to take all summer courses at CLU. If students opt to take summer courses outside of CLU, they will not be eligible for the 2018 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 2018 semester.
