Commencement Policy

Seniors planning to graduate must apply no later than 8 weeks prior to the date of Commencement.  Students who fail to apply by this deadline may incur additional fees and/or may not be permitted to participate in commencement exercises.  The Application to Graduate is found on Muskie Link.

Students must have all coursework fully planned by the time of commencement.  If a student has additional coursework to complete (up to 12 hours) after commencement, they may petition the Provost or the VPGCS, as appropriate, to participate in commencement ceremonies.  Petitions must be submitted to the Provost or VPGCS, as appropriate, at least 4 weeks prior to commencement and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

*Adult undergraduate degree completers should refer to the MAP Guidebook.
