    1. Check Your Eligibility

    Students who have or will fulfil their graduation requirements by the end of Semester 1 AY2018/2019 will be invited to participate in the Yale-NUS Graduation Ceremony as graduating students.

    Students who will not fulfil their graduation requirements by the end of Semester 1 AY2018/2019 but are on track to fulfil their degree requirements by end of Semester 2 AY2018/2019 will be invited to participate in the ceremony as non-graduating students. These students may include those who need additional modular credits, have taken a Leave of Absence (LoA), or are in a Double Degree or Concurrent Degree Programmes.

    Both graduating and non-graduating students will be robed. However, only graduating students will be invited on stage to receive their degree scrolls from the Guest of Honour, and have their names included in the list of graduands in the graduation programme booklet. Non-graduating students who do not wish to be robed will sit with the other guests in general guests section.

    Non-graduating students who take up the option of attending the Monday, 28 May 2018 graduation ceremony will also be invited to participate in a future Yale-NUS Graduation Ceremony as a graduating student after they have fulfilled their graduation requirements.
