Awarding of Degrees

Newberry College has three dates on which diplomas will be awarded: May, August, and December. If a student completes all degree requirements during the Summer Session, the Registrar shall be authorized to issue a diploma and transcript indicating the student received the degree as of the last date of Summer Session.  Names of students completing degree requirements during the Summer Session will appear in the December Commencement program indicating on which day the degrees were awarded.

Students receiving degrees in August will be given the opportunity to process and participate in the Commencement Exercises with other graduates receiving their degrees in December.

Students with six (6 or fewer) semester credit hours remaining may “walk” at May Commencement provided that the remaining credit hours will be completed during the following May term and/or summer terms. Students must receive permission to walk from the office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
