Is there a difference between Graduating and the Commencement ceremony?
Yes.  Graduating is actually getting your diploma and that is what you are applying for thru Registration & Records.  Commencement is the ceremony to celebrate your graduating.  The general rule is that you are invited to commencement because your are graduating.
