Countdown to Commencement

December Commencement Update

Dear Stony Brook University Community,

One of the most important traditions at any university is our commencement ceremony. This is a momentous occasion, where we celebrate our students’ achievements as part of our community and cheer them on as they embark on the next phase of their lives and careers. Given the significance of this ceremony, we are committed to making this as memorable an event as possible.

Going forward, Stony Brook will host one university-wide commencement ceremony and one doctoral hooding ceremony each year, in the spring. This will allow us to invest maximum effort and resources into these signature events hosted by the university each year. Schools and colleges will continue to host their personalized department convocations the week of spring commencement.
