Fall 2020 Commencement
Penn State Behrend's Fall 2020 Commencement will be part of the University-wide virtual Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, December 19, at 2 p.m. The virtual event will include formal remarks, the conferral of degrees, and induction into the Penn State Alumni Association.
After the virtual ceremony, graduates and their friends and families will be invited to view additional digital content unique to Penn State Behrend.
