Current Students

Case Western Reserve University grants degrees to qualified candidates three times per year—in August, for students who complete their programs during the summer semester; January, for students who complete their programs during the fall semester; and May, for students who complete their programs during the spring semester.

Due to circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 global pandemic, the university will host modified in-person graduation ceremonies over the course of several days in May 2021. See 2021 Commencement Updates for more details and the ceremony schedule.

Students who indicate on their graduation application that they will not participate in their ceremony can choose to have their diploma mailed to them. Students may also arrange to pick up diplomas from their respective dean's or registrar's office - see contacts below. Students may not receive diplomas prior to the date on which the degree is to be conferred.

Note: Students can view their graduation application in SIS and update their diploma address there, if needed.
