Convocations

Each college holds convocations the day after commencement.  Each graduate is recognized by name and walks across the stage to receive their diploma cover. The college dean presides at convocation, and the ceremony lasts approximately 2 hours. Students who graduate in December are invited to attend the next April graduation ceremonies and those who graduate in June are invited to attend the August graduation ceremonies.
