Students celebrate at Commencement

A Letter to the Classes of 2020 and 2021

Dear 2020 & 2021 Graduates,

To celebrate your academic accomplishments, SUNY Canton is planning two days of live ceremonies. The first ceremony will be held to celebrate the class of 2020 at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 8, in Roos House Convocation Athletic and Recreation Center. The event is exclusively for graduates only but will be live streamed for others to watch.

Commencement for the Class of 2021 will now be held as one ceremony beginning at 10:30 a.m., May 15, in the Roos House Convocation, Athletic and Recreation Center. There will no longer be three separate ceremonies.

All in-person event planning and safety protocols are subject to change based on updated federal, state and local public health guidelines. All students and faculty attending these ceremonies will be expected to show vaccination records or negative COVID test results before attending the event.

Additionally, the college is planning virtual ceremonies for both graduating classes. Times, dates and details will be available in the future.
