Convocation can be a busy and exciting time for students, and this information is intended to help enhance the celebratory experience of potential graduates, their families and friends, and the wider community.

Convocation ceremonies at Crandall University are held typically in the month of May. Degrees and certificates are awarded to students who successfully complete the program requirements as prescribed by the Senate of Crandall University. At Convocation, Crandall University will award degrees and certificates at the undergraduate and graduate levels from a variety of faculties.
