Commencement Celebrations

Seton Hill University observes three dates for graduation each year: May, August and December. In addition, special commencement ceremonies are held in January and June for Writing Popular Fiction graduates. Degrees and certificates are formally conferred only at the commencement exercises in May and December, or in January and June for the Writing Popular Fiction graduates. Exact dates for commencement are noted on the Seton Hill academic calendar.

A Graduation Application (PDF) for a degree or certificate must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office before the beginning of the last semester of study and not later than March 15 (for expected May or June graduation), June 15 (for expected August graduation), or October 15 (for expected December or January graduation). If you are a current student and want to ensure that you are on-track for graduation, please check with your academic advisor or contact the Registrar's Office.
