Commencement 2020

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.

In response to the current challenges we are all facing with the COVID-19 pandemic, Hartwick College has announced the rescheduling of the 2020 Commencement Ceremony for:

Saturday, September 26, 2020
at 11:30 a.m.
Elmore Field

We look forward to honoring our graduates and their achievements and celebrating with their family and friends. We are still ironing out the details and specifics for September 26. Details will be communicated in the coming weeks about the weekend including registering for commencement, cap and gown distribution and local accommodation information.

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.
