Commencement

May 2021 Commencement Weekend

Saturday and Sunday, May 29 and 30, 2021

Please be aware that due to New York State quarantine restrictions and limitations on in-person gathering sizes, Cornell has not yet decided whether to hold any in-person Commencement celebrations during the spring of 2021. While we hope to be able to make a final decision in March, it is currently unlikely that we will be able to welcome guests to any in-person celebrations. We therefore discourage guests from making any non-refundable travel arrangements until the university’s plans are confirmed sometime in March. Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.
