Commencement

May 25

Grades due from instructors; last day of spring semester.

After the final grade submission date of May 25, it takes approximately one week to “finalize” grades. This includes running such processes as repeats, incompletes, and academic standing; many additional processes must run to make grades official.

During this window, students may be able to see grades appear via the Student Center as we begin the grade posting process, but grades are NOT considered official: official transcripts cannot be released, and degree awarding cannot begin until after the grading process has been finalized. The estimated finalized date for the Spring 2017 term is Friday, June 2, at 5:00 p.m.

May 30

Campus Closed - Memorial Day
