Commencement Information for Graduating Students

Eligibility to Graduate 

Students who have questions about their eligibility to participate in Commencement Exercises should contact Kelly Cassidy, Degree Auditor at kcassidy@oberlin.edu or call (440) 775-8450.

In general, a student must be registered for work sufficient to complete all requirements for the degree(s) sought by the end of the last semester in residence in order to be eligible to participate in the annual Commencement Exercises following that semester. Students who have permission to finish their work away from Oberlin may participate in Commencement Exercises only after all requirements have been met. Mid-Year 2013 graduates and their families are invited to participate in all Commencement/Reunion Weekend festivities, including Commencement Exercises.

Parent Mailings

Parents who are living apart will receive Commencement mailings if the graduating student has provided the Registrar’s office with address information for both parents. If this information was not provided to the Registrar’s office, send an email to secretary.office@oberlin.edu and provide the name and address of the parent not listed with the Registrar. In an effort to protect the privacy of the student, our policy requires that the graduating senior must make the request.
