WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMMENCEMENT & CONVOCATION?

Commencement is the all Northwestern ceremony at Ryan Field where the Class of 2019 is commemorated as a whole. During the ceremony, student, faculty and guest speakers will address graduates and their families.

Convocation is an individual school ceremony that awards the graduate. Students walk across the stage and are individually recognized at their school’s Convocation ceremony.
