Mortarboard Challenge

Rev up your creativity and get your glue guns ready! At every convocation ceremony, students are selected and recognized during the event for their mortarboard decorations. It’s a great chance to win some Fulton Schools swag. No time to design your own? Download and print one of our pre-made mortarboard toppers.

What is the difference between commencement and convocation?

During the University’s graduate commencement, President Crow confers degrees upon all ASU graduate students (master’s and doctoral candidates). Doctoral students are hooded on the floor before walking onto stage. You must participate in commencement during the semester you apply to graduate.

During the University’s undergraduate commencement ceremony, President Crow confers degrees upon all ASU undergraduate students (bachelor’s candidates) by schools. All Fulton Schools of Engineering students are recognized together and do not walk onto stage.

The Fulton Schools of Engineering Convocation is a high-spirited celebration of our graduating students. You will be individually recognized for your academic achievement, and your name will be read as you walk across the stage to shake hands with deans and program chairs. You will be able to sit with friends in your program — so long as you show up on time!

Doctoral students will be hooded during the convocation ceremony, but master’s students will not be hooded.
