Each college holds convocations to recognize graduates by name.

The college dean presides at convocation, and the ceremony lasts approximately 1-2 hours. Students who graduate within the 2019-20 academic year are invited to attend the April 2020 graduation ceremonies.

Most college convocations do not require tickets for attendees.
