Commencement is the ceremony signifying graduation, in which participants will walk across the stage to receive their diploma cover and a letter of congratulations.
Graduation is when the degree audits have been reviewed (multiple times) and have been approved. The final review takes place after all grades have been received in the student's last semester. Final approval of the degree audit is issued by the Registrar's Office.
There are three graduation dates throughout the year, at the end of the Fall semester (December), at the end of the Winter semester (May), and at the end of the Summer semester (August).
There are two commencement ceremonies, one at the end of Fall semester (December) and one at the end of Winter semester (May).
For more information, please see the Graduation and Commencement sites.
