Relay celebrates students’ program completion with an annual commencement ceremony and related activities. Program completion celebrations may include students completing degree-granting programs, Advanced Certificate programs, and/or nondegree-granting educator preparation programs. Eligibility to take part in program completion activities is based solely on successful completion of program requirements. For first year students in Connecticut, Illinois, Tennessee, and Texas more details of program requirements are in the Academic Catalog. For all other students details are located in the Academic Programs Guide.
Relay program completers with an outstanding balance may participate in their program commencement ceremonies. Official proof of graduation or program completion, including transcripts, eDiplomas, diplomas, and verification of educator preparation program completion and/or recommendation for certification/licensure, will be withheld for students until their outstanding balances have been resolved in full with Relay (unless otherwise required by applicable law). Students with an outstanding balance may request an unofficial transcript and/or an enrollment verification letter.
