Columbia students gathering | students assembly during Graduation Ceremony

The Commencement season is full of activities and events to honor Columbia’s graduates. Individual schools have their own graduation celebrations in an intimate setting where each graduate has the opportunity to be announced and walk across the stage. University Commencement is a symbolic conferral of degrees to the graduating students from the nineteen schools, colleges, and affiliate institutions.

In addition to University Commencement and school ceremonies, Columbia graduates are invited to participate in additional ceremonies and celebrations throughout Commencement season.

*For school ceremonies taking place on Columbia’s Morningside campus, guest admission typically begins one hour prior to the start of the ceremony. For more information, please visit School Ceremonies and/or contact your school directly.
