Recipients of doctoral degrees must have deposited their dissertations in the Graduate College Thesis Office by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 21, 2017 in order to participate in the May Commencement ceremony.
Doctoral candidates who have not yet indicated their intention to graduate should contact the Graduate College.
Due to printing deadlines your name will not appear in the printed Commencement Program if you indicate your intention to graduate after March 17, 2017.
The Program contains an unofficial list of candidates for graduation on May 13, 2017, and a list of graduates who received degrees in August 2016 and December 2016. The list of May graduates is as accurate as possible. However, because of printing deadlines, names of some degree recipients may not appear, while names of degree candidates may appear even though they have not completed their degree requirements.
