Commencement is often referred to as Graduation. However, there is a difference between the two.
Commencement refers to the celebratory ceremony, officiated by a college President, where you share the excitement and importance of your academic accomplishments with peers, family, and friends.
Graduation, on the other hand, is a three-step process consisting of submitting an application for graduation form, completing all academic requirements for your degree, and settling all financial obligations. The administrative process of degree conferral will indicate your official date of graduation.
Guttman has only one Commencement ceremony that takes place each year, at the end of the Spring I semester, to celebrate the graduation of students from the Fall I, Fall II, Spring I terms and upcoming Spring II term.
