May 2016 Commencement Program

Extra copies of the May 2016 Commencement Program may be requested by emailing brina.coppi@drake.edu after the commencement event has taken place. If leftover programs are available after the event they will be sent out on a first come, first serve basis. You may request a maximum of 6 copies.

ADDITIONAL NOTES FOR GRADUATES: 

I.  If you have not filed a graduation application by Monday, February 16th, there is no guarantee that your name will appear in the commencement program because of printing/proofreading deadlines.  Please file your application ASAP.  Your graduation application not only gets your name listed in the program, it also assures you a seat among the graduates from your college during the commencement ceremony and assures that the college will process your degree release in a timely manner. 

II.  According to a Faculty Senate ruling from Spring 2005, colleges will not be able to "release your degree" if you have an Incomplete grade (I) earned in any course from Spring 2005 to the present time. Until your degree is released, no diploma will be mailed and your transcript will not say you have graduated.   Keep this in mind as you complete this semester's work.

III.  Related to item II above, if all the work for your degree is not completed within 45 days after the end of the term your graduation term will be moved forward to the next term.  That is, if you are an anticipated May graduate but you still have outstanding work by June 29, 2016 your diploma and transcript will not say you are a May graduate. Your graduation date will be moved forward to August 2016.
