All students who intend to graduate from Truett McConnell University must declare this intent by completing the Graduation Application. This application should be completed and submitted with all supporting documents no later than November 15 of the academic year in which the student plans to complete degree requirements.
Degrees are awarded at the end of the fall, winterim, spring, and summer terms upon the completion of all degree requirements. The University holds one commencement (graduation) ceremony each May for those who have completed all degree requirements. Students who lack only two courses to complete their degree after spring semester may submit the Early Commencement Participation Request Form to request permission to walk in the May ceremony if the remaining two courses will be completed in the following summer term.
Students will be contacted via email by the Registrar’s Office during spring semester with information regarding commencement. Students will order their caps and gowns through the college bookstore during the spring semester. Diplomas and final transcripts will only be released to those students who have satisfied all financial obligations to the university.
