Convocation Information

Celebrate Student Success and Diversity!

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. All Maricopa Community College graduates, friends and family, and employees are invited to attend any of the Convocation ceremonies.

Some Convocations have limited seating. Please RSVP for all ceremonies here.
