Commencement 2020

Sunday, October 11 at the XL Center in Hartford


Sunday, October 11 at the XL Center in Hartford.

CCSU's Spring Commencement Ceremonies are postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. We understand this decision is extremely upsetting to our students and their families, but these are unprecedented times.

We are planning a party for graduates on Saturday, October 10 and formal commencement exercises on Sunday, October 11 at the XL Center in Hartford.

Please check back for details in the near future (we will also send graduates the details via email).

Diploma Information

Students will be notified once their degree has been awarded and final transcripts will be available upon electronic request. Diplomas will be mailed out to Spring graduates in late-July.

Ordering Regalia

Some of the May graduates let us know they want to order regalia now. At this link, our “May” graduates can order regalia and have it shipped to their homes.


Let’s celebrate now!

The commencement ceremony may be a few months away, but we think it’s a good time to start celebrating now. Start here to view a special commencement message from Dr. Toro.

We’ve come up with a few other ways to share your graduation news with friends and family online and outdoors.
