Degree List vs. Commencement List

The degree list is how you officially signal the university that you are ready to graduate and are in the process of completing your final courses for your degree. In order to graduate, you must add yourself to the degree list by the beginning of the semester (the spring, summer, or fall) you expect to complete all of your graduation requirements (e.g., breadth, double major, minor). This is done through Tele-BEARS when you register for your final semester courses (or by L&S petition, once the semester begins).

The commencement list is the names of all registered graduates that will go into the printed program for the May commencement ceremony, which is open to students on the Summer 15, Fall 15, Spring 16, Summer 16 degree lists.
