Student recognition is the focal point of Commencement. Most academic departments and student programs honor their outstanding degree candidates by submitting their lists of graduating award and scholarship recipients to print in the booklet.
Commencement is Saturday, May 19, 2018.
DO NOT include alumni.
DO NOT include students who do not yet meet graduation or degree candidacy criteria.
Graduate Certificate and post-baccalaureate students do not participate in commencement and are not eligible for the printed booklet until such time as they may become master's degree or certificate of advanced study candidates.

PROVIDE ONE LIST FOR YOUR BACHELOR'S AWARDS and A SEPARATE LIST FOR YOUR MASTER'S AWARDS.
Bachelor's awards: List all undergraduate awards for your department in one Word document and e-mail the document as an attachment to Academic Affairs. Do not use tables.
Master's/C.A.S. awards: List all master's and certificate of advanced study awards for your department in a Word document and e-mail the document as an attachment to Academic Affairs. Do not use tables.
Submit awards listings for currently graduating students with their past awards even if they are not receiving awards this year (e.g., received a department scholarship as a sophomore, received department award for best design as a junior, named outstanding research project as a junior, etc.).
Each department should routinely maintain a running list of its students receiving awards for easy annual reference so that you can forward their names when they do graduate.
Double-check spelling of degree candidate names in Banner. Include middle initials if provided. List must match names in Banner or the degree candidate will be omitted. Submit full proper names-no nicknames or abbreviations.
Academic Affairs or the Graduate School will confirm your department's awards with you once we have reviewed and formatted the listings. This will take a few weeks. Listings do not go to print without department review and confirmation.
