Commencement is the celebration of graduation – or impending graduation – usually held prior to a degree being conferred.

There are two ceremonies celebrating graduation, the Hunter College Commencement and the School of Education Graduation Celebration. The School of Education ceremony is a separate celebration from Hunter College’s commencement ceremony. You are encouraged to participate in both.
