Dean's Exception for the All-University Commencement

As approved by the University’s Deans Council, candidates for graduation who have up to two courses outstanding to complete their degrees may petition their school dean for eligibility to participate in the All-University Commencement. The two courses must be completed by the end of the summer. Students with extenuating circumstances (for example, international students whose visas expire or who are subject to travel restrictions) will have their situations reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

The College of Dentistry, School of Law, and School of Medicine do not allow for Dean's Exceptions. 


  • Students must:
    • obtain a Dean’s Exception form from their school’s designated academic officer (click here to view the list)
    • completely fill out and sign the form
    • bring the completed and signed form back to their school’s designated academic officer for verification and an approval signature
  • In addition to verifying the accuracy of and signing off on the Dean’s Exception form, the designated academic officer should give the student an All-University Commencement invitation.
  • The Dean's Office should keep a copy of the completed form for its records and for verification purposes.
  • Dean’s Exceptions WILL NOT be able to order All-University Commencement tickets in advance, but must follow the in-person request procedure outlined on the Dean’s Exception form.
  • The student must submit the completed and signed Dean’s Exception form when picking up his/her Commencement tickets at the Kimmel Center beginning Thursday, May 10, 2018. Requests cannot be honored before May 10.


Diplomas are mailed to the graduates' permanent addresses by the Office of the University Registrar approximately eight weeks after graduation.
