The Sims 3: University University Life: Graduation
Graduations happen after Sims complete their degree. Different Sims graduate at different times, depending on their major and when they start attending University.
Your Sims can invite their friends (including NPC) the day before to the graduation ceremony.
Completing a degree will earn your Sims an extra academic trait slot. Higher the grades the better the career benefits. Sims with an "A" grade will start their career at level 4, "B" grade at level 3, and "C" grade at level 2.
