I applied late for the Spring graduation term; can I still attend the commencement ceremony?

Can I attend the commencement ceremony even though I applied late for Spring graduation

Yes. Student Activities will be notified to add a student's name to the list. A student's name may not appear in the commencement booklet depending on how late the student applied. Attending the ceremony does not mean that the student has graduated. The commencement booklet refers to all students as "Candidates" which means that students might possibly earn their degree that year.  The office of the Registrar will certify a student's graduation status after all final grades have been posted.
