On May 9, 2020, the Penn State community – undergraduate students at all Commonwealth Campuses and graduate students in The Graduate School – will come together virtually to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates.

In this time of social distancing, Penn State will livestream our commencement ceremony to recognize the completion of the academic experience for more than 14,000 students and to mark this significant milestone in their lives.

The virtual commencement is the first step in recognition of the Class of 2020. The University is also committed to having students and their families return to campus for in-person celebrations when public health guidelines allow. We are exploring potential dates, logistics, and activities for this recognition event of more than 14,000 graduates at all levels, as we would not want to miss this opportunity to acknowledge their successes.
