Fordham’s Commencement includes two events: the University Commencement Ceremony and the school diploma ceremonies.

At the University Commencement Ceremony, degrees are officially conferred by the president and students are recognized as a group by their dean. Following the University Commencement Ceremony, individual college and school ceremonies take place. These ceremonies are where students are individually announced and receive a ceremonial scroll from the dean. Please see below for additional details by school.

We also invite you to explore this website to learn about all the events and ceremonies honoring the Class of 2024, resources to help you plan your visit, and much more.
