Caldwell University is pleased to confirm the 78th Annual Commencement on Sunday, September 20, 2020. On this day, in accordance with the current state guidelines, Commencement will take place outdoors and follow event limits of 500 people. In order to do so, Caldwell University will host multiple ceremonies on campus to celebrate our graduates!

Eligible graduates include those who completed their degree requirements in December 2019 and May 2020, as well as candidates who will complete requirements in August 2020.

In order to comply with the state of New Jersey, each graduate will be allowed two guests. Graduates planning to attend Commencement on September 20 must confirm their participation by 5 p.m. on August 10* through the link provided via email and on the my Caldwell portal. The start time of each ceremony will be determined once the final count is received to ensure proper social distancing and capacity limits. Participants will be contacted no later than August 17, 2020 with their corresponding ceremony times.

If you plan to attend the ceremony and have not yet ordered academic regalia, please contact the Bookstore at 973-618-3262 by August 3* for next steps. Information on obtaining previously ordered regalia is included in the link sent to graduates; please complete by August 10*.
