HU Graduation 2019.jpg

Commencement

Each May, commencement ceremonies are held on the main campus of Howard University. The Commencement Convocation celebrates the accomplishments of all graduating students from degree-granting programs across the University. The College of Dentistry's Hooding and Awards Ceremony, as well as Hygiene Pinning Ceremony, also occur during Commencement Week Activities.

Howard’s Commencement activities garner crowds of thousands, and the numerous elders and children regularly in attendance. We will provide every effort to avoid the potential for additional virus spread which would be problematic.  All guests/visitors on campus for commencement week activities must provide proof of COVID vaccination.
