Graduation is a day of ceremony and celebration at Harvard University and Harvard Medical School. Students are granted the M.D. and any other advanced degrees they have earned; they are hooded and they receive their diplomas.

Graduation consists of two parts: the Commencement Ceremony and Class Day. Information about specific timelines and other details are distributed directly to graduating students.
