All applicants for Spring 2015 or Summer 2015 graduation will be eligible to participate in the 2015 May Commencement Ceremonies. Students who graduated summer 2014 or fall 2014, who did not participate in a prior ceremony, will be eligible to participate in the May 2015 ceremony. Petitions to participate are no longer required; simply apply to graduate in the term you intend to complete degree requirements.
**Please be advised, participation in the May Ceremony does not equal graduation. Students must meet all graduation requirements before a degree is conferred and the diploma awarded.**
$25.00 graduation fee is due when you apply to graduate. Follow this link for details: http://registrar.cofc.edu/graduation/fee.php
