Graduating Students: Information is available here

A number of graduating students have inquired as to whether they must participate in the University wide graduation service. SBA would like to help clarify:

 

Law graduates may choose to attend the University-wide ceremony, but are not required to attend. If a law graduate chooses to participate in the University-wide Commencement, he/she MUST attend the practice the night before at the KFC Yum! Center. Most law graduates attend the Law School Convocation only.
