Graduation Versus Commencement 

  • Graduation refers to completion of your degree. Commencement refers to the actual ceremony held by the university to celebrate your class' graduation. 
  • Participation in commencement ceremonies does not guarantee the awarding of a degree.
  • It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all requirements have been met by the established deadlines.
  • Degree Checkout refers to a department of Registrar Services which assess a student's fulfillment of University, general education, major, minor and/or teacher certification requirements.
