Seminary commencement exercises are held each academic year at the end of the spring semester. Students must complete a Graduation Checklist with the Registrar’s approval in order to participate in graduation ceremonies. Each student who is eligible to receive a degree is expected to participate in the commencement, unless he has compelling reasons for being absent. In such cases, a student will receive the degree in absentia.
Faculty and administration happily provide any assistance or necessary paperwork, records, and letters of recommendation to a student who needs them for entrance into another graduate program or a position for which they are qualified.
