2020 & 2021 Graduate Ceremony Information

We understand that a virtual ceremony may not be unexpected, but comes as a disappointment to many of you. Please know that we will still celebrate your accomplishments as graduate and advanced degree recipients in the best way possible. Our goal is to make this a special occasion for you and your families.

The virtual graduation ceremony for 2020 and 2021 graduate students will take place on Saturday, May 15, at 3 p.m. It will follow a traditional Commencement format with the ability to engage virtually with each other, with faculty and with your families. 

We invite all families and friends to watch the Baccalaureate Mass and Commencement ceremonies online at https://commencement.manhattan.edu.
