We know the difference between graduation and convocation can be confusing. Graduation is the achievement of completing your program requirements. Convocation is the celebration of this achievement. This is where you walk the stage, receive your parchment and we recognize your success.

You must apply to graduate in order to complete your program. When you do, we’ll ask if you plan to attend the upcoming convocation ceremony.

After you apply, we’ll evaluate your requirements and award your credential as long as you’ve successfully completed your program requirements. You’ll see your awarded credential on your transcripts on the appropriate conferral date. Review more details about Graduation including when and how you can apply to graduate.
