Graduate School Policy Statement

Degree Conferral Dates


 The Graduate School’s determination of its dates for conferral of degrees is based on the need for students in specific academic disciplines to have their degrees posted more often than May, August and December.   Additional graduation dates will be used to accommodate students who will earn or have earned a professional certificate issued by an agency other than Marquette University.  This will include Wisconsin teaching licensure, the state licensure in clinical psychology and the specialty certificates in Orthodontics, Endodontics, and Prosthodontics issued by the American Dental Association.

All graduate students other than those listed in the paragraph above will be restricted to graduating in May, August, or December of each year according to the Academic Calendar.  In addition to these three regular graduations, the following additional graduation cycles will be implemented for the groups of students specified:
