If I fill out an Application for Degree/Certificate, does that mean that I have to participate in the Commencement Ceremony?
No. Although we would love for everyone to participate in Commencement, we realize that some may wish not to or have prior commitments that prevent them from attending. If you do not participate in the annual Commencement Ceremony in May, your diploma will be mailed to you. It usually takes approximately 5 weeks to receive your diploma in the mail. You should make sure that we have your correct mailing address on your Application for Degree/Certificate.
