Graduate School of Social Service Diploma Ceremony

Saturday, September 18, 2021

The Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service (GSS) is very much looking forward to celebrating our students' many achievements at our in-person diploma ceremony scheduled for Saturday, September 18, 2021 at 10 a.m. ET. We ask that all graduates arrive at the Rose Hill campus at 8:30 a.m. ET.

At this ceremony, we will celebrate graduates from both the Class of 2021 and the Class of 2020. 

All graduates and guests aged 12 and older must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 (two weeks after receiving the final dose) to enter Fordham's campus and attend the ceremony. Guests under the age of 12 must provide a negative Covid-19 PCR test taken within the previous three days and wear a mask at all times.

Documentation must be shown with your ticket to enter campus. 

We plan to hold the ceremony outside on Edwards Parade if at all possible. Only in the event of severe weather will the ceremony be moved indoors. If the ceremony is moved indoors, the same tickets will be valid. You and your guests will be informed when you arrive on campus. Additionally, if the ceremony is moved inside, masks will be required for all graduates and guests.

Every person entering campus for the ceremony must have a ticket. 

Caps and Gowns Availability

Caps and Gowns will be available for rental on the day of the event, starting at 8:30 a.m. ET. The cost will be $63 for Master's and $124 for Doctoral gowns. Cash or card will be accepted. You can pick them up at Keating Hall, Room 110.
