Seven hundred two students were spring 2014 graduates while 504 students were graduates from the December 2013 ceremonies that were cancelled due to inclement weather. Three ceremonies were held throughout the day to accommodate the large number of graduates. The following degrees were awarded: Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Master of Arts, Master of Science and Master of Business Administration.
