Typically, Commencement Day at Case Western Reserve University includes the university-wide convocation, followed by eight separate diploma ceremonies. Due to circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 global pandemic, the university will host modified in-person graduation ceremonies in May 2021. The university convocation will be pre-recorded and available for viewing online. 

Public health considerations require that we limit attendance only to graduates. Ceremonies will be livestreamed so family and friends can view them remotely.

If you need help identifying which degrees are conferred by each school, the complete degree list from each school is available here: Find Your Ceremony.

Ceremony Schedule 

All events will take place outdoors on Freiberger Field, are limited to graduates only, and will include COVID-19 safety protocols.
