Every student is invited to participate in the College of Education Convocation upon completion of their graduate degree. The College of Education follows the campus policy on participation.

  • Candidates eligible to participate in the College of Education Convocation and campus-wide Commencement ceremonies include August 2018 graduates, December 2018 graduates, and May 2019 degree candidates. 
  • Doctoral candidates who have not completed all degree requirements including depositing a dissertation by the April doctoral deposit deadline are eligible to participate in the College Convocation Ceremony only if pre-approved by the student's advisor, department, and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. The student will need to file a College of Education Exception Request Form and agree to deposit by May 10. Doctoral students who have not met the April deposit deadline will not be allowed to participate in the campus-wide Commencement ceremony.
  • Ed.M./M.A./M.S. and Certificate of Advanced Study (C.A.S.) degree students with 8 or fewer hours remaining who expect to complete their degree requirements in August 2019 may participate in the college convocation; however, their names will not appear in the printed College Convocation and campus-wide Commencement Programs until May 2020.

August 2018 C.A.S. and Ed.M degree students must email their departmental contact in the Graduate Student Services Office of their intent to participate in the College Convocation. Failure to do so will prevent students from receiving important information.
