Virtual Penn Commencement
Please join the entire University of Pennsylvania community on Monday, May 18th at 11am to 12pm ET for a live online university-wide celebration for the Class of 2020! The celebration will take place on the University of Pennsylvania’s 264th Commencement page.
Due to the University and world response to COVID-19, Penn announced on March 16th that the May 2020 on-campus Commencement events are cancelled.
Based on the recent recommendations of the CDC and leading public health experts, who are now directing against any public gatherings of more than 50 people for the next two months, we cannot responsibly plan to bring thousands of people to campus for our traditional Commencement and Alumni Weekend in May. To protect the health of our graduates, their families, alumni, and faculty and staff of the University—our highest priority in the face of this unprecedented coronavirus pandemic—we are cancelling this year’s on-campus Commencement events and moving them to a virtual ceremony that will be broadcast online.
