Moravian College
Commencement

Congratulations Class of 2020

Important Information

An update from President Grigsby on April 8 - Moravian will host an on-campus graduation ceremony on Saturday, October 24, 2020 (Homecoming Weekend). We are still working on the timing for that ceremony and the other events that will be incorporated into that day. I promise that this will be a very special day as we welcome home all our 2020 graduates into the entire pack of Moravian Hounds. I continue to ask for your patience; we need time to coordinate all of these potential shifts in plans and activities. I will share more information about commencement celebrations as they are determined.

A student’s true graduation is based on the date they finish their program of study. The ceremony is a celebration of that achievement. In spite of our ceremony being postponed, students will be able to apply for jobs or graduate school as a college graduate! 

Please check back here for more updates in the coming months.

On Saturday, May 9, 2020, Moravian's undergraduate, graduate, and seminary students will come together in one joyful graduation celebration!

Commencement exercises will begin at 10:00am, on the John Makuvek Field behind the Haupert Union Building on the North Campus. The ceremony will conclude the 278th academic year at Moravian, America’s sixth-oldest college. Unless there is severe weather, the Commencement ceremony generally continues outside. If rain is expected, please come prepared.
