Winter Graduation

The Office of Student Affairs, the Senior Class, and the Graduate Council sponsor a reception and recognition ceremony, honoring graduate and undergraduate students completing their degrees in December/January. Degree candidates will receive an email invitation from the Student Affairs Office before Thanksgiving. Students and their families are encouraged to discuss the event so students may RSVP on their family's behalf.

Ceremony and Reception

Chesapeake Rooms, Sadler Center

Official Degree Conferral

The "degree conferral" date listed in the Academic Calendar is the date when a student's official academic record will indicate that the degree has been earned. There are no formal Commencement exercises mid-year, which is why we host the Winter Graduates Reception in December and why we encourage those completing degrees mid-year to return for their formal Commencement celebration the following May.
