Convocation Information

Maricopa Community Colleges traditionally offers students the opportunity to celebrate graduation through culturally focused convocations. Convocations are smaller, more intimate graduation celebrations that are focused on a particular discipline, skill or culture. Maricopa’s cultural convocations are open to students from Estrella Mountain and all other Maricopa colleges.

It is important that you register to attend and indicate how many guests you will bring. For planning purposes, you must register in advance.
