Graduate's Checklist

The big day is almost here! Use this checklist to prepare for graduation and to participate in the Commencement ceremonies.

Commencement Day Procedures

Commencement is a time for family, friends, faculty, and staff to take pride in graduates’ accomplishments and congratulate them on a job well done. The ceremony symbolizes the culmination of many years of hard work. SUNY Oswego personnel strive to make commencement as smooth as possible for everyone involved.

  • Download our Commencement Day Procedures PDF for more information.
  • There will be an information table for graduates inside the west (Penfield Library) entrance to the Marano Campus Center.
  • Masking is required for those graduates not fully vaccinated and boosted. We strongly encourage all others to wear a mask indoors in all public settings, consistent with the campus community message sent out on April 5, 2022. This is subject to change depending on evolving conditions and New York State health, safety and capacity guidelines. Visit Oswego Forward for more information. 

All Commencement ceremonies and activities will be held in accordance with New York State health, safety and capacity guidelines in place at the time of the event.
