2020 Commencement

The ongoing public health emergency for the coronavirus (COVID-19) required us to cancel Pomona College's Commencement exercises, one of our most important and beloved community celebrations, originally scheduled for ‪May 17, 2020. Degrees for graduating seniors were conferred as of ‪May 21, 2020.

In collaboration with leadership from the Class of 2020, the College held a virtual Commencement ceremony on December 19, 2020. In addition to the online ceremony, the College is planning for a special in-person alumni celebration for the Class of 2020 at a future time when the campus is permitted to host large gatherings under public health guidance.

Please note that we are currently developing a subtitled version that will be made available to families in China on an accessible platform. Please contact PomonaEvents@pomona.edu if you would like to be notified when that version is available.
