What is the difference between commencement, the hooding ceremony and graduation?
"Commencement" is a ceremony marking a milestone in your academic career. You will wear traditional regalia, receive a diploma cover symbolizing your degree, and have the opportunity to celebrate your achievements with friends, family and the UAA community. Be aware that conferring of degrees at the ceremony is provisional, pending verification that all your degree requirements have been met. You'll receive an email from Degree Services when your diploma is ready to be picked up.
The "hooding ceremony" is a special ceremony for graduate students receiving their graduate hoods. This ceremony is separate from the main commencement ceremony.
"Graduation" means finishing all of your degree requirements, applying for and receiving your diploma. For information on applying for graduation, and the steps to receiving your degree, visit the UAA Registrar's Web site.
