Congratulations to the Class of 2021!
This annual University-wide ceremony celebrates graduates from Columbia’s eighteen schools, colleges, and affiliate institutions. Degrees are symbolically conferred upon candidates by the President of the University.
Each of Columbia’s eighteen schools and institutions conduct their own ceremony to honor the accomplishments of their graduating class. Sometimes called Class Day or Graduation Ceremony, these celebrations are typically smaller in size and more intimate than University Commencement.
This historic ceremony celebrates Columbia University graduates as they matriculate from their Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) programs and become commissioned officers in the United States Military.
