Commencement 2020

At this time, no decisions have been made regarding the details of the weekend.  The planning committee is working on a FAQ webpage to be available soon. Please know that we appreciate your feedback and will do everything we can to make sure the weekend is a magical one for the graduates of the Class of 2020 and their families. 

At Hartwick College, Commencement is much more than the ceremony in which we award the traditional baccalaureate hood and degrees are conferred on graduating students. It is the moment our students become alumni. It is the day they step off our campus prepared to make a difference in the world.

Commencement weekend is the culmination of many years of hard work and determination on the part of each one of our students. We encourage our students to invite as many guests as they choose to help them in celebrating this momentous occasion.
