Each semester we host a Graduation Celebration for Penn State World Campus students, their families, and friends. One of our favorite World Campus traditions, the celebration gives us a chance to both meet one another in person after semesters of working together at a distance, and celebrate your remarkable achievements with you and your families. We look forward to welcoming you to Penn State's University Park campus for this event.
During the celebration there is a recognition ceremony as well as a family-friendly reception where you will have a chance to meet fellow World Campus graduates, faculty, and staff in person.
Graduating students whose commencement ceremonies take place on the University Park campus will receive an invitation during their semester of graduation, after filing an intent to graduate.
