Graduation - Class of 2022


Thursday, May 26, 2022 (All day)


Harvard Yard and the HMS Quad*

Graduation is a day of ceremony and celebration at Harvard University and Harvard Medical School. Students are granted the MD and any other advanced degrees they have earned, they are hooded and they receive their diplomas.

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

Harvard University’s Commencement will be held Thursday morning, May 26, 2022. Harvard Medical School Class Day exercises will follow in the afternoon.

Information about specific timelines and other details are distributed directly to graduating students. 

*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. 

Information for graduating students including the Class Day schedule, logistics, and ticket pickup information can be found on the internal Class Day website. (HarvardKey login required)
