Maricopa Community Colleges Convocation

Maricopa Community Colleges has a proud tradition of offering students, their families, and friends the opportunity to celebrate graduation through convocation ceremonies. Convocations are a more intimate and culturally focused event designed to celebrate students from diverse communities and various special interest groups. We invite all our graduates, their friends and families, and our employees to attend any of the convocation ceremonies as we honor student diversity!
