Commencement Information

What is the difference between graduation and commencement? That’s a great question! Graduation is completion of all coursework, earning of the diploma, and the posting of the degree to the transcript. Students should click here to enter the MyUSF Portal for graduation details. Commencement, on the other hand, is the ceremony that celebrates or marks the completion of college work. Please read below for details related to commencement.
