There is not a separate commencement ceremony for Summer graduates. Summer graduates are included in the official commencement program for the following Fall ceremony, and therefore should follow the Fall privacy settings deadline. Summer graduates should contact their department or college about whether they are able to walk in the Spring departmental ceremony. No bachelor’s or master’s candidates walk at the main university commencement ceremony in either the Fall or Spring.
