Spring Ceremonies

Convocations are ceremonies in which students are acknowledged in a smaller setting. These are designed and coordinated by each individual school or college.

Commencement is the university-wide celebration held in Arizona Stadium. Convocations are ceremonies in which students are acknowledged in a smaller setting, often by name.

Celebrate With Friends

Convocations are ceremonies in which students are acknowledged in a smaller setting. These are coordinated by each individual school or college and are separate from Commencement.

Graduation celebrations are events to honor students in special interest groups and their achievements. They occur before or after a student’s convocation and are an additional way to celebrate.

Please note, these are separate from the University of Arizona's Commencement Ceremony and are not managed by our central office.

For specific questions regarding these ceremonies, please use the information below to find the appropriate college contact.
