What is the difference between graduation and commencement or college/school graduation ceremonies?


To graduate, students must submit a diploma application through NEST, successfully complete all undergraduate or graduate program requirements by the end of the graduation term/semester, and the degree must be awarded by the Registrar’s Office on the award date designated.

Opening and graduation ceremonies of colleges and schools

Commencement and Convocations are the symbolic ceremonies that mark the end of your university career where you receive congratulations on your degree. This is an opportunity for you, your family, your friends, and the Montclair State University community to celebrate your achievement.

Only August 2021, December 2021/January 2022 graduates and May 2022 applicants who have completed all undergraduate and graduate degree requirements by the end of the Spring 2022 term will be eligible to participate at the beginning or at the convocation of the degrees.

If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to apply for graduation by Tuesday, February 15. Applying for the degree is the only way to ensure that May 2022 applicants are on track to graduate and will receive all ceremony-related emails.
