Students should consider the Graduate School's website their primary source of information regarding Graduation and Commencement.
Application for Graduation
All students must apply to graduate through the Graduate School in order to be awarded their degrees. Due to Commencement preparations, students planning to graduate in May (the majority of English MA students) must complete their applications by February 1.
Students graduating in other months must apply by the first business day of the month they wish to graduate. The Graduate School does not graduate students in June.
Please review the Commencement section of the Graduate School's website for the Commencement schedule, information about purchasing academic regalia, and other instructions for participating in the ceremony.
