The University and the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences join in your personal joy and satisfaction in achieving your academic goal. We want to make the commencement ceremony an enjoyable one for you and your guests, in keeping with Penn State's proud academic heritage.
Commencement exercises for Penn State graduate students are held three times a year: at the end of the fall and spring semesters and at the end of the summer session. Attendance at commencement is expected.
Spring commencement ceremonies will be postponed while the University explores options for celebrating the achievements of our students. These decisions align with recommendations from the federal government that call for restricting of all gatherings of more than 10 people.
