Degrees are voted by faculty and the board of trustees in February and May. Students who complete Division III by the fall completion deadline will be awarded their degrees on the first Friday in February. Students who complete by the spring completion deadline will be awarded their degree on the day of commencement. Please refer to the academic calendar for deadlines. No degree will be awarded until evidence of completion of degree requirements has been received, library books returned, student conduct sanctions fulfilled, and outstanding bills paid. All holds must be cleared by the individual offices responsible before a degree is awarded.
