Commencement

We share and celebrate our graduates' accomplishments and this important milestone in their lives.

Congratulations, Class of #Catawba22

 

Is there a difference between Graduation and Commencement?

Yes, there is. Graduation is the official awarding of degrees earned. Commencement is the event which celebrates the completion of degree programs.

Catawba students can graduate at then end of the fall, spring, and summer semesters while we award degrees in December for the Fall semester, May for the Spring semester, and July for the Summer semester.

We hold our Commencement ceremony once a year in May. Find information about this annual event below:
