Countdown to Commencement 2024!
University Commencement of the 270th academic year will be webcast live on Wednesday, May 15, 2024. Tune in on this page to celebrate the accomplishments of this year's graduates.
Each of Columbia's nineteen 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.
The Baccalaureate Service is a multifaith service celebrating the completion of each undergraduate's academic career from Columbia College, The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of General Studies, and Barnard College.
