This form contains a list of students who have been cleared by the Registrar’s office that are cleared to graduate in May 2024. Names will be updated as they clear the Registrar. For students that are intending to graduate and are not on this list, please email Susan Gore with their name and a summary for the reasons you are nominating him/her.
