2. On the date of the last class day in the term with the latest ending date of the summer session for those who complete requirements between spring commencement and the end of the summer session.

3. On the date of the last final examination, or the date listed in the University calendar as the official closing date of the fall semester for those who complete requirements since the end of the summer session and the end of the fall semester.
