Commencement update

Due to the ongoing public health crisis, Wellesley will not be able to host an in-person commencement this year. While nothing can replace our traditional commencement, this May 31 we will go forward with a virtual ceremony, during which we will confer degrees so that graduates are able to move forward with careers and further academic pursuits. Next year, when we expect this pandemic has passed, we will gather at Wellesley to celebrate in person with our red class of 2020. For more information, see President Johnson’s Update on Commencement and Reunion 2020.
