**There is one ceremony a year at the Mont Alto campus in the spring semester. Students may participate prior to or after their actual graduation date if they will graduate in summer or fall.

NOTE: This calendar is subject to change without notice. In preparing the calendar for an academic year, the University makes every effort to avoid conflicts with religious holidays. However, conflicts are sometimes unavoidable. When they occur, efforts are made to make special arrangements for students.
