Academic School Ceremonies

Based on the current situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the university has decided that in-person commencement exercises will not be able to take place this May. Any new information will be shared on this website as soon as it becomes available. Read the full announcement.

 


Following the main Commencement ceremony, each Academic School hosts their own ceremony, usually followed by a reception. The Academic School ceremony is an opportunity for each program to celebrate as a cohort group, hear remarks from a speaker related to their chosen disciplines, and honor each graduate as that individual walks across the stage to receive 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; The USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work; and The USC Viterbi School of Engineering.

Ceremony and celebration information for each school will be provided at a later time. Please check back for updates.
