Twice a year, we honor our graduating students at the College of Education Graduation Convocation. This is an opportunity for soon-to-be alumni to celebrate the conclusion of their collegiate journey with classmates and close friends.

At convocation, each student is recognized by name, shakes hands with the dean, and receives a special College of Education gift as family and friends celebrate from the audience. All graduating students in the College are invited to attend. All graduating students are to wear their cap and gown to convocation.

In addition to registering for the College of Education's Convocation through the Office of Student Engagement, all graduating students who wish to have their name appear in the Convocation program are required to apply to graduate in Athena on the Office of the Registrar's website.

Note: Summer graduates may opt to participate in either the fall or spring College of Education Convocation ceremony, but in order to be listed in the spring program, graduates must apply to graduate by the spring graduation deadline.
