Policy re: Dual Degrees and Dual Majors

May Commencement Ticket Policy concerning Dual Degrees and Dual Majors:

Some of our candidates are students earning dual majors, with both majors in the same school or college.  Other candidates will receive dual degrees, when the student has fulfilled requirements for two separate degrees in two different schools or colleges (or within the same school or college).

Students who will receive dual degrees in two different schools or colleges, may receive the maximum number of tickets allowed for each school’s ceremony, if they wish. 

Students who will receive dual degrees in the same school or college, will only attend that one ceremony and will only receive guest tickets (up to the maximum allocation) for that one ceremony.

In the case of dual degrees in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, students should choose one ceremony from the two that align with their degrees (if different). They will receive guest tickets (up to the maximum allocation) for the one ceremony they choose to attend.

In the case of dual majors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, students should attend the ceremony for their primary major. They will receive guest tickets (up to the maximum allocation) for that one ceremony.

Questions about an individual student’s dual degree situation should be directed to the Degree Audit team in the Registrar’s Office.
