Johns Hopkins University plans to hold the universitywide Commencement in-person for undergraduate seniors at Homewood Field on Thursday, May 27 at 7:30 p.m. ET. Should weather prohibit the Thursday evening ceremony, the rain date is scheduled for Friday, May 28 at 11:30 a.m. ET.

Family, friends, guests, and graduate degree candidates of the Class of 2021 are invited to join via livestream. So that we may provide the safest experience for the participating graduates, we ask that family and friends not come to campus for the event.

To ensure the safety of our graduates, and in accordance with University COVID-19 protocols, masks will be required, seats will be assigned to ensure graduates are physically distanced during the ceremony, and, instead of lining up to cross the stage, graduates will be recognized from their seats during the event.

Although plans may need to change based on public health guidance and state and local regulations, we are optimistic!  Please continue to check this page, Facebook, and Instagram for more information.
