Where can I get information about Commencement exercises?
All activities related to Commencement are managed by the Office of University Events, 106 Koch Hall, (757) 683-6797 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please refer to the Commencement web site for more information.
Can I "walk" during the Spring commencement even though I have applied to graduate during the summer?
Yes. Students who apply for graduation one week prior to the deadline for Summer graduation may participate in Spring commencement. Information on tickets for commencement is available at the Commencement web site.
May I graduate in the Spring and still take a class in the Summer?
Yes, however, a registration hold is placed on your account until you are re-admitted in a new status (2nd degree, graduate, or non-degree). You must also complete a new Application for In-state Tuition when your status changes, in order to qualify for in-state tuition rates. Courses taken subsequent to the award of your degree cannot be used to meet requirements of the degree already awarded. Contact the Office of Admissions for more information.
Is there a commencement ceremony for students who graduate in August?
No, there is no commencement ceremony held in August. You may walk in the May ceremonies.
