Extended to: Friday, March 10, 2017
The deadline to submit awards has passed. Final listings will be sent to departments for review during the week of April 18. Please e-mail Academic Affairs with questions.
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 13, 2017.
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.
Please use the online Student Awards submission form for bachelor's and master's/certificate of advanced study degree awards.
Please submit awards listings for currently graduating students with 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 may take a few weeks. Listings will not go to print without department approval. Please use the contacts below with any questions.
Bachelor's Awards: Patricia Alessandra, Academic Affairs Office.
Master's/C.A.S. Awards: Marnie Letzelter, Graduate School.
