Graduation is the official conferral/awarding of degrees earned. Dominican confers degrees five times each year. For actual conferral dates see the academic calendar.
Commencement celebrates the completion of degree programs. Dominican holds only one commencement in spring to which students from all five dates, who have applied, are invited to participate. For more information see the commencement page.
Graduation Applications are submitted prior to your final semester to determine eligibility for degree conferral.
These applications should not be confused with commencement participation.
When completing the form, you will be required to choose the term in which you plan to complete degree requirements.
