Important Update

The University Commencement ceremony scheduled for May 18 at MetLife Stadium has been cancelled. The University is considering several options for a virtual ceremony. We owe it to our graduates to confer our degrees formally and on time.  

In addition, we hope to be able to have an in-person ceremony should circumstances allow later in 2020, however, if that is not possible, 2020 graduates will be invited to join the 2021 ceremony.  

Vancouver Campus Commencement

Due to the current COVID-19 virus, the Vancouver Campus 2020 Commencement Ceremony and related events initially scheduled from May 2 to May 7 are now postponed until further notice. If you have any graduation questions, please send an email to vancouver-graduation@fdu.edu.
