Graduation is the term we use to refer to the actual completion of your degree. You must apply to graduate and to receive a copy of your official diploma
Commencement is the term we use to refer to the graduation ceremony where you walk across the stage, shake the college president’s hand as your family and friends cheer you on. You must ALSO apply to participate in the commencement ceremony.
All students from all Edison State Campuses and Centers who plan to complete their degree this semester are eligible to participate in this commencement ceremony. There is no additional cost to participate in the commencement ceremony, although you will need to purchase a cap and gown from the Edison State College bookstore to walk at the ceremony.
