Application for Graduation
It is your responsibility to obtain and file an "Application for Graduation" or an "Application to March without completion" request with the Academic Records office (contact 1-269-471-3375 or email@example.com). Graduation ceremonies are in May and August; there is also a December graduation when degrees are conferred, but there is no commencement ceremony. Persons who take a December conferral are eligible to participate in the following spring (May) commencement. Consult the academic calendar in the bulletin for application deadlines, which are 3-4 months in advance of graduation. The DMin office staff can submit the form on your behalf, but you must communicate with the DMin administrative assistant to request the service; email firstname.lastname@example.org.
