What’s the Difference Between Graduation and Commencement?

Graduation is the completion of all degree, diploma, or certificate requirements as recorded on an official transcript. Students must complete steps 1 and 2 to have their record reviewed for program completion.

Commencement is the ceremony  to celebrate the completion of a degree, diploma, or certificate. Students who apply for graduation are invited to participate in the Commencement Ceremony and GradFest.
