Commencement

Graduation

Although the words are often used interchangeably, there is a difference between graduation and commencement.  Graduation is completing your academic requirements to earn your degree.  Commencement is the ceremony to celebrate your graduation and accomplishments.  You will find information to assist you through the process of applying for graduation as well as participating in commencement.
