Why sign up for pre-graduation orientation?

Pre-graduation orientation is an online forum that aims to prepare and familiarize various university processes associated with graduation as well as the services available to graduates post-graduation. This is meant to provide tips on the next steps and present an opportunity to ask questions about graduation and commencement procedures.

Did you know applying for graduation and participating in commencement are two separate processes?

"Graduation" is the act of receiving a diploma or degree from a school, college, or university. Bryan University presents degrees and certificates to all students who have officially and successfully completed all graduation requirements.

"Commencement" is the ceremony to celebrate students who successfully completed all graduation requirements. Bryan University’s annual commencement is scheduled for January, 27th 2023 at 3 PM PST, and an RSVP is required from students to participate.
