The student must be in one of the following three categories:
- September 2012 graduate (completed all degree requirements by Sept. 1, 2012).
- February 2013 graduate (will have completed all degree requirements by Feb. 1, 2013).
- June 2013 candidate for graduation (will have completed all degree requirements by June 1, as indicated by their degree audit). (Note: Degree audit filing deadline is March 15, 2013.)
A senior with a maximum of two courses to complete and with a graduation date of September 2013 may request permission "to walk" at the 2013 Baccalaureate Commencement Ceremony provided he or she has registered for the appropriate courses for summer 2013. Such requests must be made only after registration for summer 2013 has been completed.
Those requesting permission will be asked to complete a petition to walk application and provide appropriate documentation (e.g., Degree Progress report) to verify their status. If permission is granted, the student should be aware that his or her name may not appear in the 2013 Commencement Program.
