Late walks are granted on a case-by-case basis when a hardship prevents a student from attending their graduating semester as space allows in our venue.

This form is currently for students who want to participate in the Fall 2021 ceremony. Registration for the Spring 2022 ceremony will open the first week of January. 

Late Walk Policy

To be considered, students must complete this form by the withdrawal deadline of the semester they wish to participate in (e.g. a student who is graduated in fall but wishes to walk in spring Commencement must complete the form by the withdrawal deadline for spring semester).  The Registrar's Office will review all submissions and notify students of their final decision five business days after the withdrawal deadline. Decisions will not be granted ahead of this schedule.

Participation in a later ceremony is not guaranteed. The student's name will only appear in the Commencement program of their graduating semester and will not be re-published in ceremony they participate in. The student's name will still be called and displayed at the ceremony. 

Questions regarding a late walk may be sent to dc@registrar.gatech.edu.


Are you a Summer 2021 graduate?

Summer graduates are invited to participate in the fall ceremony because we do host a summer Commencement. If you are no longer checking your Georgia Tech email, you can register a personal email with us.
