The University of Pennsylvania’s 267th Commencement ceremony will take place on Monday, May 15, 2023, in Franklin Field at 10:15 a.m., and will be preceded by student and academic processions through campus. The ceremony will feature the conferral of degrees, the awarding of honorary degrees, greetings by University officials, and remarks by the Commencement speaker.

The gates to Franklin Field will open at 7:00 a.m. for guest seating. Every person entering Franklin Field will be required to go through airport-style security screening, which will slow entry into the stadium. Note that only certain small items (including cell phones, wallets, and small clutches) will be permitted.  A good rule of thumb: if an item does not fit in your pocket, please do not bring it. See the prohibited items list on the Commencement website for more information. Tickets are not required. The ceremony will end at approximately 12:15 p.m.
