I finally received the email from APU’s Office of the Graduate Registrar. As of 8:30 yesterday morning, I am finally cleared for graduation.
Last night, I dropped off my dissertation’s final copy to the Director of Library Publications in order to begin the book binding process. The last hoop to jump through is the 20-minute presentation on my research study that I have to give on December 14 (followed by the hooding ceremony) with the actual commencement taking place that Saturday December 17.
