Good morning!  Sam Houston follows the same protocol as the majority of the institutions who responded.  We award degrees at the end of term fall/spring/summer.  We do provided a letter of completion upon request to degree candidates not pending any current courses to be completed.

Have a great day!

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,
