2021 Commencement Ceremonies

Wednesday, May 19, 2021 to Saturday, May 22, 2021
10:00 am

We are delighted to share that working within the state’s capacity guidelines and projections—and with the advice of WPI’s Coronavirus Emergency Response Team—we have created a festive and celebratory way to acknowledge this important milestone. Instead of a large-scale ceremony, we have scheduled several smaller, more personal events, assembled by degree programs, departments, and schools. This will allow us to accommodate two guests per student while following the required social distancing and capacity guidelines.

The Commencement ceremonies will be held May 19 – 22, 2021. For those who cannot attend in person, each ceremony will be live streamed on the day and time of the event. The video for this event can be accessed from the commencement ceremony event listings below. 

Visit the Commencement website for more details.
