All students are invited to participate in the College of Education Convocation upon completion of their graduate degrees. 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 2017 graduates, December 2017 graduates, and May 2018 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 Exemption Request Form and agree to deposit by May 11. 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 2018 may participate in the college convocation; however, their names will not appear in the printed College Convocation and campus-wide Commencement Programs until May 2019.

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.
