Note: If an alternate location than what is listed for your campus is more convenient for you, please contact studentsupport@an.edu and they will arrange for you to participate in the ceremony of your choice.

It is with great anticipation and excitement that we are approaching graduation.  As students, this is the culmination of all of your hard work and effort.  Your family, friends, and other members of your support network will also share in this important milestone.  But after 43 years at American National University, I can tell you that for me and the other faculty and staff this is no less an important and satisfying event!

First and foremost, we urge you to remain focused on your studies right through the end of your program.  While some of you have already successfully completed your program requirements, many of you will be finishing your academic requirements right through the end of the first spring term (Term 173).  You must have successfully completed all graduation requirements in order to participate in graduation.

More information will be coming in due course regarding specific procedures, pick up of your caps and gowns and other regalia, and more.
