Graduation and Commencement Information

Graduation Information
Students at Davenport University may graduate at the end of any semester in which they complete the coursework required for the curriculum in which they are enrolled and meet all graduation requirements. 

Every candidate for graduation must submit a graduation application. Students who elect not to participate in the commencement ceremony must still file a graduation application.  Final graduation audits are completed for those students that have submitted their graduation application.  The final graduation audits are performed after the end of the semester and once all grades have been submitted and processed. 

Diplomas are printed and mailed to the student’s permanent address on file 6-8 weeks after the final date of the semester in which all degree requirements are met.
