Students celebrating their Commencement.

Virtual Ceremonies

Virtual Ceremonies: May 17

Congratulations to the Class of 2021 and the parents and family members who helped support our students on their journey. We know how important it is to mark this moment in your lives. This year, your perseverance and determination are especially notable. Pace will celebrate your success with virtual ceremonies for NYC undergraduates, Pleasantville undergraduates, graduate students, and Haub Law students. During the ceremonies, degrees will be officially conferred by Mark M. Besca '81, chairman of the Pace University Board of Trustees. Honorary Degree Recipients, award-winners, and student speakers will also be addressing the graduating class. By joining these streams in real time, you can join the chat and celebrate with your classmates, faculty, families, and friends. The ceremonies also will remain available for later viewing.
