Temple University’s 2021 commencement will consist of a series of in-person events, divided by school and college, on and around May 6, President Richard Englert announced today.

The university will also hold a virtual university-wide ceremony on May 6 for all 2021 graduates, according to the announcement. 

Guest attendance at graduation events will depend on city and state COVID-19 regulations at the time, according to the announcement. The university will livestream commencement events for those not in attendance.
