What's the difference between graduation and commencement?

Graduation is the completion of all degree or certificate requirements as recorded on an official transcript. Students must submit a Graduation Application to the Registration and Records Office in order to have their record reviewed for program completion.

Commencement is the ceremony to celebrate the completion of a degree or certificate. Students who apply for graduation are invited to participate in the Commencement Ceremony.
