We only confer at the end of the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. We consistently get pushback from students who do not want to wait, but we have held to those limited conferral dates.

Subject: [TACRAO] Listserv Question About Conferral Dates

Good afternoon,

We're doing some benchmarking to see what other colleges are doing when it comes to conferral dates, especially for Allied Health degrees. Our practice has long been that we award a degree or certificate after the semester has ended, regardless of the when the final course was actually completed. For example, we have a group of students who are completing their degree requirements in July; those students will not have their degree awarded until the Summer term ends on August 12th.

We have recently been questioned about this practice, and thought it would be good to reach out to TACRAO members to find out what other schools are doing. Do you award degrees on dates other than your end-of-term dates?  If not, how have you handled push-back from students needing the degree posted sooner for licensure purposes?

Thank you,
