Please note: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Spring Graduation, scheduled for April 25, 2020, as well as the Awards Banquet scheduled for April 24, is canceled. It saddens us to cancel such an important event for our students and faculty, as it gives us the opportunity to celebrate the immense amount of work accomplished and give thanks to God whose grace sustains us. The seminary administration will continue to explore options for a way to recognize the achievements of our students, especially in the context of our 100th year.  
Dear Graduating Students, 

As you have applied for graduation during either the Fall 2019, Winter or Spring 2020 academic terms, this information is for your reference and planning purposes. Below you will find links that will take you to detailed, specific information for the Commencement events and dates to remember, according to your particular certificate, diploma or degree status. Please print your information sheet and set calendar reminders.

If all academic degree requirements have been met, your certificate or diploma will be mailed to your home address of record approximately ten (10) weeks following your final term. Special Note:  STB and STL diplomas originate at The Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome and will take several months to arrive.  Please be sure to keep your address current with the Registrar’s Office.

Congratulations on your accomplishment. As this is our Centennial Year you join thousands of graduates who share the rich history and mission of Sacred Heart Major Seminary!
