Diploma Conferral

Diplomas are conferred four times each year: January, May, August, and December. 

Students must submit a degree application form, available online via myRider or in their academic dean’s office, in order to be eligible to receive a diploma on any date. Students must apply for graduation by the deadlines established each year by the Registrar’s Office.  More information is available on the Commencement Candidates web page. 

Diplomas are conferred only upon those who have met 100% of all degree requirements.
