Stevens postponed the Commencement 2020 ceremonies from May to October, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We had hoped that by October our state and country would be in a place where large gatherings could once again be held.

Unfortunately, there is still a great amount of uncertainty about holding large gatherings, and the State of New Jersey requires that travelers from many states quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in NJ. After extensive consultation with the university community, Stevens has decided that it is in the best interest of the community, the students, and their families to hold the ceremonies virtually on Sunday, October 18, 2020 (rescheduled from Saturday to Sunday to allow as many members of our community to attend as possible.)
