Virtual Commencement Ceremonies

Adelphi will hold virtual Commencement ceremonies by school/college on Monday, May 24 for the Class of 2021 and Tuesday, May 25 for the Class of 2020. These virtual events will serve as the ceremony that formally recognizes each graduate and confers their degree. Recordings will be posted online for our students, families, and community to view and share.

  • Individual ceremony times will be released when available.
  • All 2021 graduates should review the checklist for important dates and deadlines related to applying to graduate and submitting your personal information and name pronunciation to MarchingOrder.
