Commencement 2020

Although there is still uncertainty about holding large gatherings in the Fall, Stevens has reserved Saturday, October 17, 2020 for our 2020 Commencement at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, NJ. 

As we have done throughout this time, we will follow all guidance from the State of NJ and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to ensure the health and safety of our community.  Given the ongoing uncertainty, we recommend that you wait to book any non-refundable travel until later in the summer or early fall when there is more guidance about hosting large in-person events.  We will send and post additional updates as we get closer to the new date. 

Academic Regalia

It is required for all faculty and staff participating in the Commencement Ceremonies to wear academic regalia (robes, hoods, caps/tams). Details on how to order rental sets of regalia will be posted soon.

Family Members Graduating

Stevens has a tradition of offering faculty and staff members the opportunity to participate in the Commencement Ceremony if a family member is receiving a degree. When the graduate’s name is called, you are invited to present the diploma on stage, along with the President, Provost, or Dean. Also, VIP tickets can be available for your guests.
