Graduation
GRADUATION is getting a diploma or academic degree or the ceremony that is sometimes associated with it, in which students become graduates . Before the graduation, candidates are referred to as graduands. The date of graduation is often called GRADUATION DAY. The graduation ceremony itself is also called COMMENCEMENT, CONVOCATION or INVOCATION. Normally, the ceremony and name apply to high school and above (the next ascending levels being Associate's, Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctorate).

When ceremonies are associated, they usually include a procession of the academic staff and candidates and a valediction . At the college and university level the faculty will usually wear academic dress at the formal ceremonies, as will the trustees and degree candidates
