Graduation Participation Policy

Students who expect to complete their degree requirements in the current academic year are eligible to participate in the Northwestern University in Qatar spring graduation ceremony. This includes those who are registered for summer courses that will fulfil all of their remaining degree requirements. All expected graduates must meet with Academic Advising to confirm their eligibility and complete all documentation necessary for participation in the ceremony.

Those students who are expected to fulfil all of their remaining degree requirements in the fall of the following academic year are not eligible to participate in the spring graduation ceremony. They will be part of the spring graduation ceremony of the following academic year. For example, a student in the Class of 2018 who will not fulfill his/her degree requirements until fall 2018 will participate in the spring 2019 graduation ceremony, if s/he so chooses.
