College Graduation Announcement Wording

In general, your college graduation announcements will be similar to the announcements you made when graduating high school. In case you don’t remember, a typical announcement template includes the following information:

  • Graduate’s full name
  • Name of school
  • Graduation year and/or date
  • Date, time and location of graduation party, if applicable

For the purposes of your college graduation announcement, you will also need to include another important piece of information your recipients will want to know: the degree you received.

Your announcement wording should complement the card’s design. Above all, you’ll want to keep your announcement clear, straightforward and expressive. Keep your personality a part of it even if you opt for a formal, traditional tone. To add some of your own personal expression, a meaningful graduation quote or saying makes a great addition. Once you’ve chosen a personalized design and decided on the tone you prefer, you can begin working on your wording. See our guide to college graduation announcement wording ideas for both formal and informal announcement styles. You can also send photo graduation invitations to friends and family to celebrate your achievements with them.
