Difference Between Graduation and Commencement
Graduation is the process of being awarded a degree. To be awarded a degree, students must have a degree audit by the Registrar’s Office and meet all degree requirements.
Commencement is the congratulatory ceremony (walking across the stage) held each spring in which the attainment of a degree is recognized by the College community, friends and family.
Statement About Commencement Participation doesn’t mean degree completion and diploma
Participating in Commencement is not an indication of official graduate status.
