Edgewood College is a symbolic ceremony provided for students, faculty, and
families in celebration of our students’ accomplishment.
Anticipated Spring graduates are eligible to participate in the May commencement ceremony; anticipated Winter graduates are eligible to participate in the December commencement ceremony. August degree candidates are invited to participate in either the May or December ceremony during the year in which they graduate (with the exception of Accelerated Post-Baccalaureate Nursing students who may only participate after their degree has been earned).
A student may only participate in one commencement ceremony
for each degree awarded. Any students seeking an exception to the above
commencement ceremony participation policy must be submitted in writing to
These cases are reviewed by the Registrar in conjunction with the Academic
Edgewood College does not use honors cords in
commencement ceremonies. Latin Honors, if awarded, will be recognized in the
commencement program and ceremony. Latin honors for commencement are based on
the last grading cycle in which the student was enrolled. Honors will be
updated after final grades are submitted and will appear on the official
transcript and diploma.
The commencement ceremony date is not the same as the date the degree is earned. Edgewood College awards degrees and posts them to student transcripts three times each year - January 10, May 25, and August 25.
