Participation in the commencement ceremony is not limited to those students who have completed their degree requirements in the fall semester. Students meeting any of the categories below may participate in commencement.

M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree candidates who have completed all degree requirements and did not participate in the previous commencement may participate, but cannot participate in any further commencement ceremonies. Students can only take part on one commencement ceremony for each degree.

M.Sc. thesis candidates who have completed all of the course work for the master’s degree, but not the thesis, may participate, but will not graduate until the thesis is completed.

Ph.D. candidates who have completed the defense examination with either a “pass” or “conditional pass” may participate, and will officially graduate during the cycle in which they complete their remaining degree requirements.
