Commencement 2020 Updates

Cornell’s commencement weekend, scheduled for May 22-24, 2020, has been postponed. In a message to May 2020 graduates, President Pollack committed that a commencement ceremony will still be held in Ithaca for graduates and their families. A date and location will be announced at a later time, as that will be determined by the progression of the current public health crisis. While commencement will be delayed, graduates will receive their degrees on time.

When a decision is made, it will be communicated to the Cornell community via email and posts on the Commencement website.

Thank you for understanding at this time.
