Commencement Procedure

Effective August 31, 2009

Union Institute & University annually holds a national commencement ceremony for the purpose of recognizing graduates of all degree programs. National commencement occurs typically in early fall in Cincinnati, Ohio. Regional commencement ceremonies are also held periodically at other university locations.

Graduates of Union Institute & University programs are eligible to process at a commencement ceremony if they have officially graduated and have not previously processed (unless previous participation was for graduation from a different Union Institute & University program). Some programs also allow students to process when they are projected to fulfill all program and university degree requirements and financial obligations by a specific time or term prior to the commencement ceremony. Students should refer to their program handbook and/or academic center for specific requirements to participate.
