August & December Graduates
D'Youville holds one graduation ceremony for all students in May of each year
No matter when you graduate (May, August or December), D'Youville holds one graduation ceremony for undergraduate and graduate students in May.
Any student (undergraduate or graduate) who completes their studies by December is eligible to take part in the May graduation ceremony of that academic year. For example, a student who completes their degree program in December 2012 is eligible to attend the May 2013 commencement activities.
Please note: Your name will appear in the graduation program as a December graduate.
Those students (undergraduate or graduate) who anticipate completing their degree program by August are eligible to attend the May graduation ceremony. For example, a student who completes their degree program in August 2013 is eligible to attend the May 2013 commencement activities.
Please note: Your name will appear in the graduation program as an August graduate. You will not receive your diploma until all program requirements are completed.
Check with the Registrar
All students must be cleared by the Office of the Registrar to be certain that they have completed all the requirements for graduation (or can realistically complete the requirements). Inclusion in the graduation program is solely determined by the Registrar.
