2024 marks the 141st Commencement for graduates of the University of Southern California.

Each academic school hosts their own ceremony, usually followed by a reception. Each school’s ceremony is an opportunity for graduates to celebrate as a cohort group, hear remarks from a distinguished speaker related to their chosen disciplines, and walk across the stage to receive their diploma and congratulations from the platform party.

Ph.D. candidates are also invited to official hooding ceremonies held by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism; the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences; the USC Marshall School of Business; the USC Rossier School of Education; and the USC Viterbi School of Engineering: these ceremonies will be held on Wednesday, May 8th.

Family and friends of all our graduates are warmly welcomed to the University Park Campus for the full schedule of commencement events during the week.

We look forward to seeing you on this milestone occasion. Congratulations to all the members of the Class of 2024!
