    The first answers the question: When will you be graduating?
    The second answers the question: When will you graduate? – more colloquially expressed as: When do you [or are you due to] graduate?

    The meanings are more or less identical, but there are always subtle differences in usage. Which version would be the more appropriate to use depends entirely on the context.
