The Academic Program

AB REQUIREMENTS

Eligibility to Participate in Commencement Ceremony

A student must have completed all degree requirements to be awarded the A.B.

Donning academic regalia (robe, mortarboard and hood) for Convocation and/or Commencement, and being called to the stage at Commencement, signify that a student has completed all degree requirements. These honors are therefore reserved, without exception, for only those students who have completed all degree requirements.

Members of the graduating class who have not yet completed all degree requirements are invited to participate in Senior Week activities with their classmates (or postpone until the year that they graduate) and to attend Convocation and Commencement as audience members. They are further invited to return to participate fully in Convocation and Commencement in a future year once their degree requirements are complete.
