Commencement at William Paterson University is an important event for graduating students, family, and friends, as well as the faculty and staff. The ceremony brings together all involved to celebrate the achievements and successful conclusion of earning a higher education degree.

The commencement ceremony is a formal celebration steeped in academic ritual and the traditions of the University complete with procession, academic regalia, and other elements of pageantry. Personal attention takes center stage as each graduate is individually recognized. Guests do not need tickets to attend the ceremony.

Join us on Wednesday, May 13, 2015, as we pay tribute to our graduating student’s achievements and potential!
