THE NURSING CONVOCATION PROGRAM IS NOT AN OFFICIAL GRADUATION LIST. While every effort is made to ensure accuracy in the Convocation program, printing deadlines may result in omission of some names and include the names of persons not completing graduation requirements as expected. Therefore, the Nursing Convocation program should not be used to determine a student’s academic or degree status. The university’s official registry for conferral of degrees is the student’s permanent academic record which is maintained by the Office of the Registrar.
