Nominate an Honorary Degree Recipient for Commencement 2020

We are now accepting nominations for speakers and honorary degree recipients at our 2020 Commencement exercises! To nominate a candidate, please complete the nomination form. We look forward to receiving your nominations by Friday, September 13. 2019.

Commencement Eligibility

Students who received degrees in December 2019 or are expecting to receive degrees in May 2020 or August 2020 are welcome to participate in the May 2020 commencement ceremony. You must have 12 or fewer credits left by the end of Spring 2020 and complete those credits by the end of Summer 2020 in order to walk in the May 2020 ceremony. If you have credits left to complete in Fall 2020, you are NOT eligible to walk in the May 2020 commencement ceremony.

CLEP exams taken in an effort to become eligible to walk at Commencement must be completed prior to the deadline to apply for graduation. Students must also be able to provide proof of a passing grade by the deadline to apply for graduation. If a student has more than 12 credits remaining for degree completion after the application deadline, they will be responsible for completing these credits and are not eligible to walk at Commencement.

Apply For Graduation!

All potential candidates for graduation are required to file an Application for Graduation and Diploma, available online at the Office of Student Assistance website or at the Pace paperless website. With this paperless form, you will be able to verify how your name will be presented on the diploma, graduation date, program information, and diploma mailing address among other items. We encourage you to file the form immediately to ensure that the updates are processed in a timely manner that coincides with your expected graduating class. Additional information, including deadline dates, can be found on the OSA web page under Graduation.
