As a DrOT, DPT, MSPAS or PharmD student who entered the University as a first-year student before earning a bachelor's degree, you are eligible to earn a bachelor's degree as outlined by your program even as you continue your matriculation toward your professional degree.
Students who anticipate graduating with a minor should check on WebAdvisor to confirm that the minor is listed. If you have any questions regarding your minor, please contact the department where your minor is offered.
Graduates with Disabilities

The ceremony will be a full cap-and-gown affair, with students being acknowledged individually by the faculty for the earning of their degrees. Latin honors and the completion of minors will be acknowledged at the ceremony. We will invite a guest speaker, and in addition, we will ask each of the colleges to select a graduate to speak to the graduates, faculty and guests.
Photos will be taken of all graduates.
Legacy Society Seating and Photo Opportunity
At USciences, legacy is defined as any individual – University student or alumnus – with a familial connection to another University student or alumnus, including those related by marriage.
Alumni Relations is pleased to celebrate the long-standing tradition of generations of families who have attended University of the Sciences in Philadelphia with our Legacy Society.
We would like to offer seating in the reserved section to Legacy Society guests of our graduates.
If any of your guests – parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins or siblings – are alumni of USciences, then your party is eligible for Legacy Seating in the Reserved Section.
Please send an e-mail to Casey Ryan, Director of Alumni Relations, email@example.com with the following information:
With this information, we will be able to guarantee space in the Reserved Section for your guests.
After the ceremony, all legacy families are invited to the ARC conference room for a photo opportunity to commemorate the event.
The number of guests that each graduate can invite will be determined by the number of graduates who petition to participate in the ceremony, and will be determined early in the spring semester. However, each student will be given a minimum of four (4) admission tickets for family and/or friends as well as 10 announcements. Tickets will be distributed by your Dean's Ofifce in mid April.
