Medallion Announcement
Students may only walk at the Medallion Ceremony if they have completed their thesis (no incomplete theses allowed) and have six or fewer credits of incomplete grades or additional coursework to complete over the summer to meet all graduation requirements. Students who have incomplete grades on their thesis are invited to walk at the next medallion ceremony after they have completed the thesis and all other graduation requirements. Students in the Wilkes Medical Scholars program who matriculate into medical school during their 4th year are the only exceptions to this rule.
