Graduation

Congratulations on finishing a challenging degree program. The Department of Nuclear Engineering applauds your accomplishment. To ensure this is an enjoyable event for you and your guest(s) we would like to remind you of a few planning steps.

  • It is the graduating student’s responsibility to notify the University of his or her intent to graduate. Confirm the activation period on the Academic Calendar for the dates when you can activate your intent to graduate.
  • Using the “Apply for Graduation” link within the My Academics page in the LionPATH Student Center, you can set your intent to graduate
  • Once you have applied to graduate, the undergraduate office assistant will review your degree audit to ensure you have completed all of your degree requirements. In addition, the University Registrar’s Office will email you regarding the correct spelling of your name for the diploma and the address to be used to mail your diploma. Keep a close eye on your PSU email to ensure you do not miss any important communications from either office.
  • After the activation period expires, you must contact Ms. Lori Yarger in the Undergraduate Program Office to activate or remove your intent to graduate. Ms. Yarger’s email address is lay1@psu.edu
  • See the Registrar’s Graduation web site for additional information, such as transcripts, diploma mailing and instructions for name and address changes. http://www.registrar.psu.edu/graduation/graduation_index.cfm
  • Visit Commencement at University Park to learn more about your important day http://commencement.psu.edu/index.html
  • There are no tickets for any of the Penn State Commencement Ceremonies. All seating is on a first come first served basis. You are welcome to invite as many people as you would like to.

About

The Ken and Mary Alice Lindquist Department of Nuclear Engineering at Penn State is one of the top ranked nuclear engineering programs in the United States. The department distinguishes itself from other programs with a strong focus on experimental research in power, science, security and safety. The actively growing department leads four educational programs for students pursuing a bachelor of science, a master of science, a master of engineering or a doctoral degree. The department also houses the Breazeale Nuclear Reactor, the country’s first and longest operating licensed nuclear reactor. The construction and operation of the reactor introduced nuclear engineering to Penn State, and, in doing so, harnessed research and educational opportunities as key strengths for the department. See how we’re inspiring change and impacting tomorrow at nuce.psu.edu.
