Fulton Schools  Convocation

Attention 2020 and Spring 2021 graduates

If you wish to participate in an in-person Convocation, you are welcome to join one of the following ceremonies: Fall 2021, Spring 2022 or Fall 2022.

If you choose the Fall 2021 ceremony, please register through My ASU under the grad link. Registration opens Oct 18.

Congratulations, graduates!

This semester, you can choose how to experience Fulton Schools Convocation: in-person or online.

As you plan all your ASU graduation events, such as ASU Commencement and Special Interest Ceremonies, we invite you to add a Fulton Schools Convocation ceremony to your plans.

Fulton Schools Convocations are high-spirited, personal and lively celebrations of you. All graduates’ names are read and PhD candidates are hooded. And don’t miss the traditional brandishing of the light saber!

Registration for Convocation and all ASU graduation events opens Monday, October 18, 2021 in My ASU.

You may choose one Convocation option: in-person or online. Learn more below!
