Welcome Graduates!

Commencement 2021: May 8-14, 2021

Each year, it is Rowan University's honor to welcome thousands of graduates to celebrate with their loved ones and our academic community during the Commencement festivities. While Commencement may look different this year, our #RowanPROUD spirit remains the same.

A live virtual University ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 8 at 3:00p.m. Along with President Houshmand's address, the conferral of degrees and messages from commencement speakers, the ceremony will feature celebratory music and exciting surprises.

On May 10-14, the University will host small, in-person Commencement ceremonies. Graduates are asked to register by March 3 to participate. Your assigned date will be determined by the number of confirmed participants and will be announced on March 15.

  • All commencement ceremonies remain subject to applicable Executive Orders and public health restrictions. As such, Rowan reserves the right to modify commencement ceremonies as may be necessary and appropriate.  We will provide as much advance notice as practicable of any changes.
