• As referenced in President Bollinger’s recent message to the community, due to guidance from the CDC and local government on the COVID-19 pandemic, we are actively working to modify our traditional Commencement events and ask graduates and their families to not make plans to return to campus for graduation activities this spring. Degrees will still be conferred on Wednesday, May 20. More information will be shared as soon as it is available.
  • Columbia University continues to closely monitor the evolving COVID-19 developments and will be making a decision in the coming weeks about our Commencement ceremonies.  Details will be shared directly with all school planners and posted on this website as soon as possible. Please refer to the COVID-19 Guidance for the Columbia Community for the latest information.
