Dominican College’s mission “….is to promote educational excellence, leadership, and service in an environment characterized by respect for the individual and concern for the community and its needs.” In keeping with this mission, we are developing plans for on-campus learning and other activities in the Fall 2020 semester. These plans will be based on consideration for the health and safety of our community and the guidance provided by New York state and other appropriate authorities.

Virtual Commencement 2020


You will be able to watch the Virtual Commencement Ceremony on this page starting at 12 noon, Sunday, May 17. Please share the link to this page with family and friends, so they can watch as well. We look forward to celebrating virtually with you and your family and friends.

Here's what you need to know.

  • When: We will start at noon on Sunday May 17
  • Where: The virtual ceremony will be held via Dominican College's Facebook page and right here on this page for those who do not use Facebook. It will also be available on Marching Orders and for viewing afterwards on the College's YouTube channel.
  • Who: Everyone is invited! Friends, family, faculty, staff, alumni and especially the Class of 2020 are encouraged to watch the Virtual Commencement.

Here are some ideas for participating in the celebration

  • Download a PDF of the official program as a keepsake (note: the video slide presentation does not match the program)
  • Visit Marching Orders to download your own slide
  • React to the video on YouTube or on Facebook
  • Take photos of yourself and tag them #DCGRADS
  • Share this information with all the important people in your life and make sure they know how to find the event

The virtual event does not replace an in-person ceremony and members of the class of 2020 will be invited to participate in a future in-person commencement.
