The graduation ceremony has no effect on your grades or credits. If you don’t go to the graduation ceremony, the school will give you your degree as a gift, or keep it for you to pick up later.

Can I still graduate if I have one class left?
If you fail a class before graduation, you will not graduate. If you can’t adjust course and get a passing grade, you’ll have to take another class in order to get your degree, both for you and the school.
The difference is that if you fail a course, your grade will be reported as a “failure” and you will not be allowed to take the course again. However, if your course is graded “pass” (i.e., you pass the exam), you may take it again in the future.
Why you should walk in graduation?
Walking at graduation is a way to receive recognition for accomplishing what many students never will. Students’ decision to participate in graduation is influenced by their family. Stockard’s extended family will be at the ceremony. “It’s a great honor to be a part of the commencement ceremony,” Clark said.
Can I skip my graduation?
You don’t have to be physically present at graduation in order to officially earn your degree. The graduation ceremony is just another day in the life of a college student. In fact, many colleges and universities do not require students to attend commencement ceremonies at all.
Some colleges, such as the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va., have no formal graduation ceremony. Others, like the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass., do have a formal ceremony, but students are not required to participate in it.
Many colleges also have graduation ceremonies that are open to the public, which can be a great way to meet new friends and make new connections.
Is it OK to not graduate?
It’s still possible to get a job even without a college degree. Many job positions do not require applicants to be college graduates. Depending on the type of school you attend, the kinds of jobs available, as well as opportunities for the career and income advancement, may be different. For example, if you go to a four-year college, you may be able to find a position that requires a bachelor’s degree.
If you choose to attend a community college or vocational school, your chances of finding a good job will be much lower. In addition, many community colleges and vocational schools are not accredited by the U.S. Department of Education, which means that they may not be eligible for federal financial aid programs such as the Pell Grant or the Work-Study program.
