    Usage notes

    In the sense “to complete studies”, the preposition “from” is often used, but may be dropped in informal speech, as in “I just graduated from college” vs. Inter: qualifier » informal “I just graduated college”. This varies between speakers, and some speakers consider “from” required, marking “I graduated college” as incorrect or uneducated.

  • Note also that the subject and object can switch between the school and the student: “I graduated from Indiana University last year” vs. “Indiana University graduated me last year”.
