Celebrate with the Fulton Schools at Convocation

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

The Fulton Schools Convocation is a high-spirited, personal and lively celebration of our graduates. All graduates’ names are read and PhD candidates are hooded. You will also see the traditional brandishing of the light saber!

Registration for all ASU graduation events has closed.
