Commencement 2020

Unfortunately, with the uncertain climate and CDC and NJ guidance about large events, Stevens Institute of Technology has decided that it is in the best interest of the community, the students, and their families to postpone Commencement 2020, originally planned for May 20, 2020.

Stevens is currently working on rescheduling the ceremonies for a later date. When the date is confirmed, this website will be updated and the graduating students will be contacted.

In addition Commencement Week KickOff, GradFest2020, and Graduate Awards Ceremony have been cancelled at this time.

Academic Regalia

Wearing academic regalia (robes, hoods, caps) to participate in the Commencement Ceremonies is required. Currently  only the "Ship to Home" option (shipping charges apply) is available when placing order on the Oak Hall website. Once the new Commencement date is announced, the "Ship to Bookstore" option (no additional cost to graduates) will be available again. Please note the following:

  • If you ordered your regalia already with "Ship to Bookstore" option, your order has been put on hold until we set the new date.
  • If you did not order your regalia yet and would like it to be "Ship to Bookstore" at no additional cost, then please wait - we will re-open that option at a later date, once the date of the ceremonies is set.
  • If you ordered your regalia already with "Ship to Home" option, then your order will be placed and you will receive your regalia soon (or already have.)
  • If you did not order your regalia and would like to order it "Ship to Home", you can do so by following the link above.
  • If you prefer to have your regalia by May 20, 2020, but you already ordered "Ship to Bookstore", you can order a new set that is "Ship to Home" and email [email protected] to cancel your original set.
