Commencement Schedule

Degree Conferral Ceremonies are held annually to officially bestow graduates with Bachelors (Undergraduate), Masters or Doctoral (Graduate) degrees.  Specific groups of students celebrate achievements at University-Wide Recognition & Certificate Ceremonies.

Health & Safety

All guests will be required to show proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine. A vaccination card, a photo of a vaccination card, an Excelsior Pass or a digital vaccine card are all acceptable. Guests should be prepared to show photo ID as well. Face coverings continue to be required for all inside campus buildings. Children under 12 who are not vaccinated may still be admitted but they must be masked at all times. Reminder: For ticketed ceremonies, guests, age 3 and over, require a ticket for the event. These guidelines will be evaluated regularly and may change; check UB’s website for the latest health and safety information.
