Commencement is exciting for you and your loved ones who have supported you
along your higher education journey.

Associate, bachelor’s, master’s and JWMI students: You are eligible to participate in a commencement ceremony if you are within   courses of completing your degree at the time of the ceremony. This does NOT include courses you are already enrolled in at the time of the ceremony. Interested students must register to participate in a ceremony by the deadline dates noted below.

Out of an abundance of caution and to limit potential exposure to COVID-19, Strayer University is cancelling this year, including Atlanta commencement scheduled for October 3, 2020 and Baltimore commencement scheduled for December 5, 2020. General information has been emailed to you. Please contact for specific questions. We regret having to make this decision, but your safety is our top priority.
