Graduation Disclaimer: Participation in the commencement ceremony is optional and is not an official verification of graduation requirements. While every effort is made to ensure accuracy in this Commencement program, printing deadlines may result in the omission of some names and the use of names of persons not completing graduation requirements as intended. This printed program, therefore, should not be used to determine a student’s academic or degree status. The university’s official registry for conferral of degrees is the student’s permanent academic record, maintained by the Registrar’s Office.
