While most of our graduates finish their education in the spring, Marietta College is pleased to recognize those who finish their requirements in the fall. 

The Fall Graduation Celebration is a more modest recognition of those students who complete mid-year, but no less important. Traditional academic regalia is required for all participating graduates. Many students also choose to walk in the official commencement in May, but this fall celebration gives students the recognition they deserve at the time of completion.

Students who graduate in the fall are counted as members of the class that graduates in the following spring semester.
