We look forward to celebrating your academic achievements with the annual spring commencement. Virtual ceremonies will honor the Graduating Class of 2021 on Saturday, May 15. Graduates and candidates have received notices of their eligibility via Buffalo State student e-mail confirming their eligibility and inclusion in the virtual ceremony.
Virtual ceremonies-one for each academic school and the Graduate School-will be streamed here on commencement day for graduates and their families to view and celebrate. While graduates will not be gathering in person on commencement day, the Commencement Committee is working hard to honor the graduating class with traditional commencement pomp and excitement. The ceremonies will include the traditional student address and commencement address, President-Conway Turner will announce the conferring of degrees, all members of the graduating class will be announced during their school's ceremony, and those names will be listed in the ceremony program booklet.
Further details about the ceremonies (start times, links, on-campus photo opportunities, etc.) are forthcoming. Please continue to check here for updates.
