We're Celebrating Your Achievement
on July 12, 2013
Excelsior College welcomes our newest graduates and their guests to Commencement 2013. We look forward to meeting you in person and sharing your pride on this very special day.
With activities scheduled both before and after the actual ceremony, Commencement is a colorful, exciting, and meaningful time each year. It offers a very special chance to meet and make connections, provides an opportunity for the entire Excelsior College family to come together face-to-face, often for the first time, and celebrates the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment unique to our graduates.
The ceremony is broadcast live on our website for those unable to attend in person. Take a look at last year's video to see the excitement that's in store for the 2013 grads.
Commencement 2013 online registration opens March 13 and ends at noon on June 14.
