Baccalaureate Petition to Walk 2015

 A senior with a maximum of two courses to complete and with a graduation date of September 2015 may request permission "to walk" at the 2015 Baccalaureate Commencement Ceremony provided he or she has registered for the appropriate courses for summer 2015. Such requests must be made only after registration for summer 2015 has been completed, as proof of registration is necessary. Please note that submission of this application does not guarantee that you will be eligible to participate in the 2015 Commencement Ceremony. 

Those requesting to walk will be asked to complete a petition to walk application and provide appropriate documentation (e.g., Degree Audit report) to verify their status. 

If permission is granted, the student should be aware that his or her name may not appear in the 2015 Commencement Program. In addition, he or she is eligible to receive two guest tickets. 

Applications are not considered complete unless all of the requirements below are satisfied.
