Please Note:
  • Eligibility: To confirm your Commencement eligibility, please contact your adviser.

  • Rain Policy: All ceremonies will take place on the Mount Carmel Campus Quad outside rain or shine. Raincoats and ponchos are encouraged if rain is in the forecast, but umbrellas will not be permitted for graduates, and guests using umbrellas must stand at the back so that they do not block the view of other guests.

  • COVID-19 Procedures and Safety: While we are confident in this plan, it is subject to change in accordance with the State of Connecticut and Quinnipiac guidelines as informed by public health conditions. We will continue to assess the public health situation and make any determinations regarding masking, etc. as we get closer to May. Information will be emailed directly to graduates' Quinnipiac email. Please check back here for further information.
