Commencement and graduation are not the same. In order to participate in Commencement, you need to have filed for graduation by the deadline for the included semesters. In order to “graduate” and receive your diploma, you have to pass all your classes and meet your degree requirements. Spring and summer graduates are invited to participate in commencement even though their final grades or requirements are not complete. This means that we do not wait to see if students passed their classes or actually met all their requirements to allow them to participate in commencement. You simply have to file for graduation by the deadline for the included semesters.


Brooklyn. All in.
