Carnegie Mellon University

Class of 2020 Commencement

While all on-campus commencement exercises are postponed due to specific guidance from the CDC not to host large events as a public health precaution, CMU is committed to bringing the Class of 2020 together for a commencement ceremony on campus in the next academic year. This celebration will include key elements of Carnegie Mellon's commencement tradition, such as college and department diploma ceremonies, as well as the doctor's hooding. 

Additional details about this commencement will be announced, including the date, as soon as the current crisis subsides and campus operations return to normal. In the meantime, we welcome ideas from graduating students as we continue to design this event. Please send your ideas to us at
