Ceremony Details

At all ceremonies, each graduate and up to four guests will be invited to the commencement ceremony. Students will walk across the stage and be greeted by academic leaders and faculty.

In Utica, pending guidance from SUNY, the NYS Department of Health, and in consultation with students, we currently anticipate having only three or four graduates process at a time, which will ensure that no more than 50 people are at the commencement location at any one time. As each graduate’s procession concludes, we anticipate welcoming the next graduate onto campus so that we can make sure every graduating student who wants to participate has the opportunity. We expect your time on campus, from arrival to departure, to take approximately 30 minutes.

Please note that we will be prepared to transition to a virtual format, if current health guidelines change.
