Do Certificate Program graduates get to participate in Commencement Ceremonies once program is complete?
The short answer is that your name will NOT appear in the commencement booklet since certificate programs are not actual “programs” (undergraduate/graduate).
As for simply walking across the stage, since names and majors are read from a 3x5 card, it is possible to participate. The catch is invitations and parking. Listed students receive 5 guest invitations plus 2 parking permits, certificate people do not appear on the graduation candidates list and thus will not receive any invitations or parking permits.
Parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood, however invitations are not available for purchase.
