Graduation (卒業 Sotsugyou) is a term used to refer to a member of AKB48, Nogizaka46, SNH48 and its respective national and international sister and rival groups, that leaves their respective group. The term is used for other idol groups as well.

Graduation Process

1. Announcement

Members usually announce their graduation from the group as a surprise announcement at the end of theater performances. The date of the member's final performance is usually decided by management at a later date.

Other methods of graduation announcement include (but are not limited to):

Reasons for graduation can vary. Common reasons include:

  • Choosing to focus on studies
  • Poor health
  • Pursuing a career in show-business outside the AKB48 Group
  • Personal reasons
2. The Ceremony

The graduation ceremony of members usually consists of a final theater performance, after which the member takes down her picture from the portrait wall of the theater. Senbatsu members often get segments of concerts dedicated to their graduation in addition to the theater ceremony. In rare cases, a full concert can be dedicated to and named after the graduating member/s if the member is highly significant to the group.
(See: List of Graduation Concerts)

In some cases, graduated members are still obligated to attend handshake events after their final performance.

3. Withdraw (「辞退」・「活動辞退」)

This term cam be used for members who chose to leave the group after a scandal involving them surfaces, such as Yonezawa Rumi, Hirajima Natsumi, Masuda Yuka, Harada Mayu and Tsuji Nozomi. It can also be used for kenkyuusei scheduled for promotion who want to leave the group anyway, such as Mitsumune Kaoru and Fujimoto Mitsuki. Lastly, the term is used for members who wish leave the group without having a final graduation ceremony.

4. Dismiss (「解雇」・「契約解除」)

This term is used for members who are forced to leave the group after breaking a rule. This rare occurrence has happened for 26 cases.

Return

A graduated member can return to the group she graduated or to a sister or rival group. However, this is usually limited due to the age limit of auditions. Currently, a total of 14 members returned to AKB48 Group after their graduation:

Graduated members can also return sporadically to perform on concerts or special theater shows.
