Graduation Information for Students

After years of unwavering dedication and hard work, you have earned your S&T degree.

It's a momentous occasion to rejoice in your achievements! Join your friends and fellow graduates at one of our commencement ceremonies, where your families, friends, faculty, and Miner community can celebrate with you.

Now, you may be wondering about the distinction between commencement and graduation. Graduation signifies that you have successfully met all the requirements to earn your degree. On the other hand, commencement is the ceremony we hold to commemorate and honor the accomplishments of our graduating students.

Embrace this moment with pride. You've truly earned it!
