Convocation & Graduation

Grady College is proud to host Convocation ceremonies for our spring and fall graduates. As compared with Commencement, Convocation ceremonies are smaller, more personal ceremonies just for our College graduates. Commencement ceremonies are for all of the graduates of the University. Please see below for specific details.
