Congratulations! Graduating from college is a major milestone and we look forward to recognizing the achievements of our graduating seniors; we are delighted to welcome friends and family to campus for this exciting event. Be sure to review our instructions and Penn State's Commencement policies below so you and your family can enjoy this memorable time.
Spring 2021 Graduation: Saturday, May 8, 2021
Penn State will host in-person commencement ceremonies in May to mark the class of 2021’s completion of their academic experience and to recognize their many accomplishments. Virtual and livestream options also will be available for students, friends and family members who are unable to attend or prefer to participate online.
College of Earth and Mineral Sciences Graduation
- Date: Saturday, May 8, 2021
- Time: 6:00 p.m.
- Location: Beaver Stadium
There will be a limit of two guests per graduate to support physical distancing, seating accommodations and stage placement. Tickets will be required for all graduates and guests attending ceremonies in Beaver Stadium, and graduates will be required to register for the tickets.
We will remain flexible, as there may be factors outside of our control, including changing virus conditions or changes in public health guidelines, that could necessitate pivoting to a fully virtual ceremony at any time.
Visit Penn State's Commencement website for general commencement information, accommodations for guests with disabilities, speakers, diplomas, transcripts, and other information.
For questions about the EMS Commencement, contact Heather Kimble at 814-863-4024 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
