CommencementCommencement refers to the ceremony in which degrees or diplomas are conferred on graduating students.

This academic accomplishment is a milestone in your life, and the celebration should be equally memorable. Commencement isn't just an experience shared with peers, family, and friends, it's also a time for the university to acknowledge and admire your incredible accomplishment.
