Graduate Information

Our commencement ceremonies will honor the mission and traditions of Canisius, and of course, appropriately celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of our graduates and honorees.  The ceremonies will include the commencement student speaker address, the conferral of honorary degrees and awards, formal degree conferral, and most importantly our graduates will cross the commencement stage in the company of their classmates to receive their degree. 

Each commencement ceremony will be streamed on the college’s website and photos by GradImages will be made available.  Photos of the graduate will be available for purchase on the GradImages website at

While Canisius College does not require masking or vaccinations to attend events, we strongly encourage attendees to wear a mask due to the high Covid levels in Erie County. We anticipate that this will remain in place for all Commencement ceremonies, Academic Convocation and Baccalaureate Mass, unless otherwise mandated by state and local guidelines. 

If you have any questions, please email @email.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
