Academic Affairs (cont'd)
Commencement is held once each year at the end of the Spring term. All diplomas are officially awarded at the end of each term. The date of graduation and the degree a student is to receive will be posted on the student’s Official Academic Record at the end of the semester in which the student meets all requirements. Students should acquaint themselves with their specific majors’ academic requirements. An advisor is assigned to every student; however, it is the student’s responsibility to know and meet the requirements for graduation.
A student who intends to graduate with a master’s degree, bachelor’s degree, associate degree or certificate will be permitted to participate in the Spring Semester Commencement Ceremony only if the student complies with the following procedure:
Diplomas will be issued eight to ten weeks after the end of academic term.
Please note: Certain departments may have additional academic requirements that must be met before students will be permitted to graduate and/or participate in the commencement ceremony. Students should check with their major department for any additional departmental requirements.
The determination for honors for students who will graduate at the end of the Spring Semester or Summer Session will be calculated on the most recent semester completed. Should a student’s cumulative grade point average (including any transfer work) at the end of the Spring Semester or Summer Session entitle the student to an honors designation, this recognition will be recorded on the student’s Montana State University Billings academic record.
