2023 Columbia University Commencement
TICKETED EVENT FOR STUDENTS AND THEIR GUESTS | ONLINE VIEWING AVAILABLE
The Columbia University Commencement ceremony of the 269th academic year will take place on Wednesday, May 17, 2023! All eligible April, May, and June 2023 degree candidates, and February 2023 and October 2022 graduates, from all schools and colleges affiliated with Columbia University, as well as family and friends, are encouraged to join in on the celebration.
There are many events throughout Commencement Week, and each school honors its graduates through its own Class Days, graduation ceremonies, and events. But the entire University community comes together for University Commencement to celebrate all of the graduates from Columbia’s nineteen schools, colleges, and affiliate institutions including Barnard College and Teachers College.
The President of the University gives remarks and officially confers degrees on the graduates, including MSW and PhD graduates of the School of Social Work. This is a long-standing tradition and a memorable and celebratory event.
Tickets are limited, but you can share this proud moment with your graduate by viewing the live webcast on this page.
