Commencement Update

Dear 2020 Graduate:

We wanted to write to you about our upcoming commencement ceremonies. PAU continues to monitor the Covid-19 pandemic and adjust university operations as necessary. At this point, no decision has been made to postpone or cancel commencement ceremonies, which are scheduled for June 20. If you qualify for graduation, please be sure to submit your application to graduate. Applications are located on the student tab or the PAU Portal.  You can also find information on our commencement web page.
Given these uncertain times, we know that people are being very cautious about travel plans and offer this current guidance:
  • PAU will cancel commencement ceremonies if guidance from Santa Clara County requires us to do so.
  • We aim to make a final decision about holding commencement no later than May 1.
  • Given the current uncertainty, graduates may choose to participate in Commencement 2021.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
