Commencement

Commencement is the symbolic ceremony where the Pace University community and family and friends of our graduates celebrate our student’s accomplishments.

Specific dates for Commencement celebrations for the classes of 2020 and 2021 are still to be determined. The decision is dependent on many factors such as venue availability, COVID-related mandates, and other variables affecting the final resolution. The Commencement website will be updated as soon as we have confirmed information.

If you plan to graduate in December 2020, May 2021, or August 2021, you must complete the required Application for Graduation and Diploma. Please be sure to complete this application as soon as possible. It is the student's responsibility to apply for graduation within the specified graduation application period.  The application deadline is March 3, 2021 for those graduating in May or August 2021. (December graduates should apply asap as the deadline already past.) By completing this form in a timely manner, you will be able to verify how your name will be written on your printed diploma and in other Commencement related materials, confirm your graduation date, your degree program, and diploma mailing address.
