IMPORTANT POLICY CHANGE AFFECTING ALL GRADUATE STUDENTS
Effective with the Spring 2012 semester, university policy will require all graduate students to maintain continuous enrollment at the university through regular enrollment until the awarding of the degree.
Hooding for Masters and Doctoral students will be decentralized. A more personalized ceremony for master’s graduates is planned to take place at the college/ school or department convocation providing the opportunity for thesis and project chairs to hood the graduate. Doctoral graduates will be hooded at commencement ceremonies on Saturday morning emphasizing the importance of their accomplishments before a larger audience. Doctoral students will also be hooded by their respective dissertation chairs.
