Asking for money at any time on any type of invitation is improper. You should never solicit for gifts and should only include registry information on a baby shower or wedding shower invitation, that are not hosted by yourself. If you need help with money to take to college, have your friends and family spread this information around by word of mouth but never include it on any type of invitation. People are not obligated to give you anything for your graduation and may be insulted if you "request" a gift of money on your invitation.
Some graduation invitations or announcements purchased through the school have inner and outer envelopes. Most purchased outside of the school do not.
When addressing the inner and outer envelopes of a graduation invitation you can be more casual than if you were addressing the inner and outer envelopes of a wedding invitation.

Order graduation invitations 6-10 weeks in advance and then mail them 4-6 weeks before the event depending on how many out of town guests you are inviting. You want to make sure the invitations have time to get to the guests in the mail and that you leave enough time to receive an R.s.v.p. by your deadline.
Graduation invitations should be sent to the people who would be most excited to see you graduate or attend a graduation party in your honor. Generally these are your closest family and friends.
If you are mailing out announcements to let people know that you have already graduated, again, only send them to the people who would most like to know.
Announcements are sent to the close friends and family of the graduate to announce that the student has graduated.
Graduation invitations are sent to invite the close friends and family of the graduate to the graduation ceremony and the party afterwards if someone is hosting one.
