How will I know if I am eligible to participate?
Degree candidates for November 2018, December 2018, February 2019, May 2019, and August 2019 are eligible to participate in the May 2019 Commencement ceremony.
Completion of degree requirements next fall (2018) will place you on the May 2019 Commencement list.
Students planning to complete requirements by summer 2019 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 2019 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 term at Cal Lutheran by no later than March 15, 2019 to be eligible for the May 2019 ceremony.
All students planning to graduate in the summer of 2019 and walk in the May 2019 Commencement ceremony will be required to take all summer courses at Cal Lutheran. If students opt to take summer courses outside of Cal Lutheran, they will not be eligible for the 2019 ceremony. Additionally, all CLEP exams must be completed by November 20, 2018 for any student graduating winter, spring or summer of 2019.
Students are ultimately responsible for ensuring they have met all degree requirements.
