2022 Commencement

Class of 2022 Commencement Ceremony

School of Advanced International Studies 2022 Commencement
Wednesday, May 25, 2022 | 11 a.m. ET
DAR Constitution Hall

We are planning for the ceremony to be held at the DAR Constitution Hall, resuming our pre-pandemic tradition. Although the plan to hold an in-person event is dependent on the course of the pandemic, we hope that students, family, friends, faculty, and staff will now be able to hold this date and time on their calendars and have time to plan accordingly.

Unfortunately, the prevailing circumstances could force us to make changes to the ceremony as it gets closer, and we reserve the right to change the date, time, location, or policies of the event in the best interest of public health.

We will provide updates, up to the ceremony day, by email and on this website.
