Commencement


Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are rescheduling spring commencement and will instead welcome all members of the graduating class of 2020 for our planned winter date of December 12, 2020.>

The Clinton County Department of Health endorses this decision and advises SUNY Plattsburgh not host large campus gatherings, such as commencement exercises, this summer.

It is important to celebrate this achievement, something we cannot reasonably do in a virtual format or even a late summer date which would be uncertain at this time. We will make every effort to make it special in December and will share more details as they are developed. Additionally, we will have special events for the Class of 2020 at Homecoming, set for the weekend of October 16–17, 2020. These details will be developed and shared as available as well.

If you are a degree candidate for May, you will still receive your diploma by mail in early summer. Please still file a Graduation Application Form if you haven’t already.

Below is a message from President Enyedi sent to the campus community on Tuesday, March 31:

Dear Campus Community,

As a first generation college graduate, I know what a milestone commencement was in my own life and in the life of my family.

I deeply understand what graduation means to students, families, friends, and the campus community as a whole. This is why it is important for us to gather and celebrate your accomplishments and success.

We want to ensure we do this right.
