When it is safe to do so, the university will host in-person celebrations on the National Mall to honor the Class of 2021 and the Class of 2020, with each class enjoying its own, curated celebration.

This May, we look forward to honoring our 2021 graduates virtually, with some in-person elements. Please see the FAQs for more information about our May 2021 celebrations.
Please email with questions.



Hail Alma Mater
To thy spirit guiding,
Knowledge thy closest friend
In its strength abiding,
Pledge we fidelity
Ne'er its place resigning,
Hail thee George Washington!
