Students who are within 15 credits of the 120 required for the degree and who can verify registration in courses that will complete all outstanding credits and requirements may participate in the spring commencement ceremony as a graduating senior. Students must apply by the deadline specified by the academic calendar outlined on the Onestop Dates and Deadlines page.
Reason for Policy
Morris has one Commencement Ceremony per year in May. Eligible students completing degrees during fall or spring or are within 15 credits of completing degrees after the following summer or fall terms may participate in the ceremony.
Students who wish to participate in commencement and plan to complete the degree in summer or fall must apply for the degree via my MyU before the Spring deadline. The deadline will always correspond with the last day to add or withdraw from a class for spring semester. The date will be listed in the One Stop Student Services comprehensive student calendar. Students must have an academic plan in place for summer and fall classes that will complete the degree.
