Certification for Graduation

Only students who have been officially certified for graduation by the Office of the Registrar may participate in the Commencement Exercises.

Two steps toward participating in May 2019 Commencement: Once all requirements for the degree have been met, there are two final steps toward participating in the May 2019 Commencement Exercises:

  1. Determining that you have been officially certified academically and financially for graduation, and
  2. Picking up your certification card/permit and other materials to participate in graduation.

Step 1: Official Notification of Certification

UNDERGRADUATES

The Office of the Registrar will certify students academically for graduation and grant them permission to participate in the Commencement Exercises. The Office of the Registrar will notify students of their certification via Morgan email only. No certifications will take place on the day of Rehearsal or the day of Commencement.

Determining Requirements for Graduation Not Met: If students are notified by the Office of the Registrar they have not been certified for graduation and believe this is an error, they should contact their graduation coordinator or academic advisor immediately to determine what requirements remain unfulfilled prior to May 18, 2019.

Students who are not certified after contacting the individuals noted above, may contact the Office of the Registrar at graduation@morgan.edu to determine whether their names have been added to the list of certified students. However, they should not wait until Rehearsal Day to do so.
