The Institute conducts a commencement exercise each year, usually in the late spring or early summer. The ceremony covers those class sections that have finished from the date of the last ceremony through to the next. Students who have completed all of their educational requirements within the normal 100% timeframe and who have fulfilled all of their financial obligations to the Institute may be invited to attend. Others may be permitted to attend with the consent of the Dean of Academic Affairs. Additional information about graduation is published periodically by the Student Services Office.
