University Commencement Ceremony

The Columbia University Commencement ceremony of the 267th academic year will take place on Friday, April 30, 2021, at 10:30 a.m. EDT via web broadcast.

School Ceremonies

Each of Columbia’s eighteen schools, colleges, and affiliate institutions conduct their own graduation event 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.
