Graduation Walk-Through Policy

Downers Grove, IL Campus

A walk-through candidate is defined as a student who has not satisfied academic requirements for a particular degree, but will complete all academic requirements for the degree within one quarter immediately following the official scheduled end of the academic program for his/her class.

All degree candidates for graduation and graduation walk-through candidates must be approved sequentially by the College/Program faculty, College Dean, Faculty Senate, President, and Board of Trustees.

A walk-through candidate must submit an official request to participate in a graduation ceremony and the request must be approved by the Dean four weeks prior to the ceremony.

The Dean may grant late submission of a Walk-Through Request due to unforeseen circumstances.

A graduation walk-through candidate will not receive a diploma until he/she has successfully completed all academic requirements for graduation.
