2020 Commencement and Convocation Postponed

 2020 Commencement and Convocation Postponed

March 27, 2020

Because of public health guidance, Syracuse University has announced it cannot proceed with on-campus in-person commencement events in May, including school and college convocation ceremonies. We deeply regret this outcome.

We are committed to celebrating and recognizing the class of 2020 in a way that is most meaningful to our graduates. The university will share a plan for alternative commencement celebrations promptly.

  1. Cap and Gowns:
    The bookstore is still accepting cap and gown orders. Graduating students can visit the bookstore site to place their orders.
  2. Online Commencement & Convocation Registration: Online registration will be required for the 2020 Commencement & Convocations. After the Fall semester date is confirmed, Special Events will activate the online registration for Commencement and Convocations. 
  3. All information about Commencement 2020 events in the fall semester is still available on the Syracuse University Commencement website.
