    'I have graduated from' or 'I graduated from'

    Which one is correct?
    'I have graduated from Xxx university', or 'I graduated from Xxx university"
    Hi everyone, I know we cannot use present perfect tense if a time frame is mentioned. So we cannot use a sentence like 'I have graduated from Xxx university in 2011.' But what about the above two sentences? Are they both correct?

    Re: 'I have graduated from' or 'I graduated from'

    In most contexts only the simple past would be correct. The only case I can think of with the present perfect requires some emphasis:

    A. You'd understand this if you'd graduated from Yale.

    B. I have graduated from Yale!
    I am not a teacher.
