Undergraduate Requirements & Procedures
The receipt of this information, tickets, robe, etc. or participation in the Commencement ceremonies does not guarantee graduation. Graduation depends solely on the satisfactory completion of all academic requirements of the University. NOTE: Students receiving solely a certification without an undergraduate degree DO NOT participate in Commencement.
All financial obligations, loans, library books, equipment owed, fines, bills, etc. must be cleared by April 30, 2013. Diplomas, transcripts and teacher certifications will be provided once all obligations are met.
The Office of the Registrar mails diplomas to the permanent address on file, unless otherwise indicated on the graduation application. A diploma and one official Rowan University transcript are mailed approximately eight weeks after the degrees have been awarded.
For your convenience, please use this Commencement checklist to meet all deadlines.
Commencement rehearsal is scheduled for 1:30 p.m., May 15 on the University Green. This is an important rehearsal—seating arrangements, line-up and entering procedures will be covered. Please make every effort to attend. In case of heavy downpour, rehearsal will take place in Esbjornson Gym. Please check the Commencement website the morning of rehearsal for rain announcements.
