2020 Commencement

Saturday, August 07, 2021
9:00 am to 12:00 pm

After being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the university is pleased to announce that Saturday, August 7 is the date for celebrating this important milestone with the undergraduate and graduate classes of 2020. Please Note: Face coverings are now required for everyone on campus. Please join us in being respectful to our community members and wear a mask at all times. 

Given the rise of COVID-19 cases in our area and heightened concerns about the spread of the Delta variant of the virus, WPI will now require everyone on campus—whether vaccinated or unvaccinated—to wear a face covering at all times indoors and when social distancing of six feet cannot be maintained outdoors. This includes both the Friday and Saturday Commencement events, as the distance between seats is closer than 6 feet.

This message was sent to all students and guests on Thursday, August 5, 2021: (Message attached as a PDF)

Tickets are required to attend commencement events. Tickets were sent to the Class of 2020 students' WPI e-mail address on Tuesday, August 3.  

For those who cannot attend in person, the ceremony will be live streamed on Saturday, August 7, 2021 at 9 a.m. and can be accessed through the link below.
