Parking Information

Commencement Obligations

All students expecting to complete their degree in May 2022 must make sure they have completed all institutional requirements in order to receive their diploma at the commencement ceremony:

  • Final grades for Spring 2022 coursework are due by Noon, May 10, 2022
  • Financial balances, including payment of all tuition and fees must be received by March 9, 2022. Any additional charges, including library, room damage, and parking fines are due immediately. A financial hold will prevent you from receiving your diploma and transcript.
  • Students with Federal Stafford Loans must complete Exit Counseling by May 1, 2022. Students need to go to studentaid.gov and click on “Exit Counseling” under manage loans. Students will need to log in using your FSA ID. Students must have a verified FSA ID (Username and Password) and you may click on the link to create it. The entire process will take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Immaculata University is automatically notified weekly of all students who have completed their counseling sessions.
