What is the difference between Commencement and Graduation?

Commencement is the ceremony that celebrates your graduation. UT Dallas students who participate in commencement ceremonies are considered “candidates” for graduation.

Graduation is the official confirmation that you met all your degree requirements and that your degree has been conferred.

Read more about our Graduation Commencement Ceremony policy in the Graduate and Undergraduate catalogs.
