What are plans for spring 2021 commencement?

Penn State is exploring options for potential in-person spring 2021 commencement ceremonies to recognize the many accomplishments of our graduates at University Park and the Commonwealth Campuses. Of course, any in-person ceremony may look very different from past ones and will depend on health and safety guidelines and the status of the COVID-19 pandemic closer to May. The University will plan for an entirely virtual ceremony as an alternative option based on public health conditions. Penn State plans to be able to provide more information in March to give students and families time to make plans.
