What are the dates and times for the university graduation and the Lindquist College Convocation Ceremonies?

Students must arrive at least a half hour early to each ceremony to ensure participation in the processional. Students at the university graduation should arrive in their cap and gown and enter the Dee Events Center through the east entrance - ushers will direct you to the correct processional line. For the college convocation program in Spring 2016, please arrive in your cap and gown and gather in room 133.

Why do I have to apply for graduation?

One of the requirements for graduation is that you must apply. The reason an application is required is to ensure that you have completed the necessary coursework for graduation. An application is also crucial to ensure your name, degree and other accomplishments are properly listed in the commencement program.

Who must apply for graduation?

Any student planning to graduate with an Associate, Bachelor’s or Master’s degree from the Lindquist College of Arts & Humanities must apply for graduation.

Once you arrive on the site, please follow these steps:

Step One:

The college advisor for the Lindquist College is Debbi Murphy. You may schedule an appointment with her directly through her calendaring system at: cahadvisor.youcanbook.me

Step Two:

Review your Cattracks degree evaluation with your advisor(s).
