The degree completion date will be determined when the doctoral student files their Petition to Graduate form. Once the petition has been filed, an exit audit will be conducted by the Special Assistant to the Provost. The student and the Director of the Doctoral Program will be notified of the results of this audit and the student’s eligibility to graduate. Graduation is also contingent upon a successful oral defense of the dissertation and final revisions to the written document must be made by the appropriate deadlines.
To participate in the Commencement ceremony and receive a diploma, students must have filed the required Petition to Graduate by the appropriate deadline and fulfilled all academic and financial obligations. Students who have successfully completed all academic requirements are encouraged to participate in Commencement. Students who have not filed petitions and/or completed all degree requirements successfully will not be permitted to participate in Commencement. Students will not be permitted to participate in Commencement in anticipation of completing degree requirements.
