Final decisions on 2020 and 2021 Commencement ceremonies have not been made at this time. Check back here often for updates—we will be posting information to help you and your family plan, as soon as it is available.
Because we are committed to safeguarding the health and safety of our community, we must carefully consider our Commencement ceremony plans.
The Commencement Committee is assessing the safest way to celebrate our graduates while remaining in compliance with state and local health department requirements. Please know that we look forward to honoring your achievements and celebrating with all our graduates. Please keep checking this page for updates.
Prepare to Celebrate Your Accomplishments

Class of 2020 Update
We are awaiting further information from health and public safety authorities before announcing our plans for the Class of 2020 Commencement, postponed last year. The health and safety of our community is our top priority; please be patient as plans develop. Our 2020 Doctoral Hooding will be rescheduled when large groups are again permitted to gather on campus for the ceremony at the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center Concert Hall.
