SEOH Program Evaluation

If you are currently enrolled in courses, please consider taking a few minutes to participate in the evaluation of the Special Education Online Hybrid (SEOH) Program. The information gathered through this study will be used for ongoing program improvement, planning, and research. We want to continually improve the program for YOU and for future students! Your consideration is greatly appreciated and your input and feedback is highly valuable to us during this evaluation process.

Spring Commencement

The 2016 Spring Commencement is Saturday, May 14, 2016. The Graduation Application deadline is February 26, 2016. Sir Ken Robinson, internationally acclaimed expert on creativity, is the keynote speaker at the 1:30 p.m. ceremony at Yager Stadium. Graduate students will be individually recognized at the ceremony.

Please see the Graduate Research Projects course site for additional graduation paperwork requirements. Any student who is unable to complete their research projects this spring may "walk" in the May ceremony and then finish in August. The student would still need to apply for May graduation, and then advise the Commencement Office that s/he will be walking in May but graduating in August.
