What you need to know about your graduation and commencement ceremony:
- If you are nearing completion of your master's degree you must complete the GPS Award of Degree Form on time (see deadlines on PDF form). You should submit your application within 14 days of the start of your last semester. This form is required in order for you to graduate and/or attend the commencement ceremony.
- Please watch your St. Thomas e-mail for your invitation to the School of Engineering Dean's Graduate Student Reception held in May and December.
- The University of St. Thomas Commencement Ceremony typically occurs on either the third or fourth Saturday in May on the St. Paul campus. There is only one commencement ceremony each year. View details at the Graduate Commencement site.
- About a month after you receive your diploma (after your St. Thomas records are updated) sign up for The Quad, the University of St. Thomas Alumni Association system, to take advantage of the personal and professional resources and perks that you have available to you once you become a Graduate Programs in Software Alumni Member.
