Sunday, May 29, 2022 (All day)


Harvard Yard and the HMS Quad*

Graduation is a day of ceremony and celebration at Harvard University and Harvard Medical School. For the class of 2020 and 2021, graduates have been granted the MD and any other advanced degrees they earned and received their diplomas, but on May 29th, 2022, they will be celebrated and hooded.

Graduation traditionally consists of two parts: the Commencement Ceremony and Class Day.

Harvard University’s Commencement Celebration will be held Sunday morning, May 29, 2022. Harvard Medical School's Class Day Graduaton Ceremony will follow in the afternoon.

Class of 2020 and 2021 alumni should register for both celebrations at the links provided above.

*At this time, and as long as conditions safely allow, our expectation is to host celebrations in person and following the tradition with all the regalia, pomp, circumstance, processions, festive music and the like that we have come to expect from Harvard.
