Will masks and physical distancing be required at commencement ceremonies?

Yes. The health and safety of students, their families, and campus communities is Penn State’s priority, and each ceremony will follow requirements for masking, physical distancing, and state and federal guidelines for gatherings. All students, guests and employees across each campus are required to wear face masks and maintain physical distancing from others to help minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19. In addition, all guests who will be attending an in-person commencement ceremony are expected to take health and safety precautions while traveling and during commencement weekend.
