A guide for family, friends, and students


Dear Families and Friends of the Class of 2015,

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to Yale University's three hundred fourteenth Commencement.

Activities have been planned for students and their guests from Saturday, May 16, through Monday, May 18. The Commencement ceremony takes place outdoors on our historic Old Campus on Monday, May 18, at 10:30 am. Individual diploma ceremonies follow immediately in each of the residential colleges and graduate and professional schools.

I hope this website will help you plan an enjoyable few days in New Haven and to celebrate the remarkable achievement of your graduate. 

We look forward to sharing this happy occasion with you and with our graduates.
