"Walking" at Commencement
If a student is or will be within one course of completing all requirements for the degree at the time of the May Commencement, the student may petition the Committee on Academic Policies to be allowed to "walk" at Commencement. Approval is not automatic - the student must submit a written petition with rationale to the academic policies committee. The committee will consider whether the student has made a good faith effort to graduate on time and whether, given the student's academic history, it is reasonable to believe that the student will satisfy all degree requirements upon completion of the additional course. If approval is granted, the missing course must be taken at Mount Union or as an approved transient course in the summer immediately following that Commencement. The student must be registered for the course prior to Commencement.
