265th Commencement

Monday, May 17, 2021
10:00 a.m.

The University of Pennsylvania will hold one limited in-person undergraduate Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2021 at Franklin Field on the morning of Monday, May 17, 2021. This plan is contingent upon there being no major interim change for the worse in the course of the pandemic. Due to public health limitations, we regret that we will not be able to welcome the entire Penn community to this year’s celebration.  For this year’s ceremony, Class of 2021 academically eligible seniors who have been part of our Penn Cares asymptomatic screening testing protocol this semester will be invited to participate.  An email invitation will be sent to those eligible, and all must register to participate.  More information about ceremony and eligibility requirements are available in the Frequently Asked Questions.

We regret that family or friends will not be able to be accommodated at Franklin Field, but they will be able to watch a live webcast and the ceremony recording will be posted on this page.

Unfortunately, we are not able to hold any other in-person school ceremonies for the Class of 2021. All school-based ceremonies will be presented virtually.  Information about these virtual ceremonies are available on the School Ceremonies page.

Please also join us for the live webcast of the University Ceremony, which will be available on this page, Monday, May 17.  A recording will also be posted on this page after the ceremony.
