Commencement Policies for August Graduates

August graduates wishing to participate in May ceremonies must have registered and paid for all their remaining units in the One Stop Student Center by May 1 of the year they wish to graduate, and take all their remaining courses in USD’s Summer Sessions.

Upon proof of payment of all outstanding debt and registration, the One Stop Student Center will issue a Graduation Clearance form to be taken to the Registrar or Graduate Records Office.

All potential summer graduates must agree to complete all degree requirements for which they have pre-registered in USD's Summer Sessions. Withdrawing from summer course(s) after having participated in the commencement ceremony will result in being charged a forfeit fee equal to 100% of the tuition charges for the enrolled summer course(s). There are no exceptions to these policies.
