Commencement 2021

The commencement ceremony for the Class of 2021 will be held virtually around the same time as the traditional in-person commencement was to take place.

Many campus operations continue to operate remotely or at reduced density. We also continue to follow public health protocols that prevent large gatherings from taking place. And, while vaccines are here and being distributed, their rollout is expected to take considerable time, and health experts say we won’t be back to "normal" until late fall 2021.

A planning committee, which will have student representation, will organize the virtual ceremony; more details will be forthcoming.

Commencement 2020

In a letter to members of the Class of 2020, President Denise Battles confirmed that an in-person commencement ceremony will not be held in May 2021, as originally anticipated.

The Senior Send-Off: Tribute to the Class of 2020 is still available. Graduates, their families, and friends celebrated their students' considerable accomplishments at Geneseo.
