There are three separate graduation ceremonies at the end of the academic year:
Convocation & Awards Ceremony
Convocation is the second Friday in June, with Commencement following the day after. The ABSN Pinning Ceremony takes place following the completion of the program in August.
Convocation information will be sent to the student e-mail listservs and posted on the nursing student website in April. Follow the posted instructions in order to RSVP to participate in the ceremony.
