With in-person commencement options being explored, how would this apply to the Commonwealth Campuses, Penn State College of Medicine, Penn State Law and Penn State Dickinson Law?

In-person options are being explored for University Park and Commonwealth Campuses. If in-person ceremonies are pursued, Commonwealth Campuses will consider hosting outdoor events on their campuses, or within their campus communities, in line with regulations for gatherings.

The College of Medicine is independently working to create commencement options that are safe. A committee has been developed to start evaluating options that will be best for our students. While safety is of utmost concern, virtual and in-person options are being evaluated and more details will be shared in the coming months.

Penn State Law and Penn State Dickinson Law host their own spring commencement ceremonies to recognize their graduates. No specific plans or announcements have been made yet regarding these ceremonies. These programs will communicate directly with their graduates regarding their plans.
