What's the word for someone that's graduated?

Asked by xTheDreamer (881points) June 18th, 2009

Is it “gradutee” or something like that? Is there even a word for someone who’s just graduated?

Alumna – don’t forget the women! ;-) tho for women (plural) it would be alumnae.

@kevbo Verb, noun whatever you call it. I just couldn’t seem to find the right word for the topic at that moment so I just put something in there hah. But thanks for your answer.

A graduate (pronounced “GRAD-joo-it”) is someone who has graduated. (The verb “to graduate” is pronounced “GRAD-joo-ate.”)

An alumnus or alumna is a graduate of a particular institution; it expresses a relationship to the institution and not just a status with respect to obtaining a diploma.
