PSU plans to host an in-person event for class of 2020 in the future! Make sure your banweb account has an accurate external email on file - we will use this email to follow up with event details once available.

Details about additional graduation celebrations from various departments and groups at PSU are available to view on the Commencement & Additional Graduation Event Calendar.

How to Watch Virtual Commencement

On June 14th at 11:00 am PST, viewing links will become available for each school/college on this webpage. All videos are pre-recorded and will be available to view after this time. Each school and college will host its own event with individual student recognition. Ceremony assignment is based on the student's major or certificate if the student is not receiving a degree. Unsure of your school/college?

A general broadcast of the 2020 Virtual Commencement ceremony will be televised through Oregon Public Broadcasting Plus (OPB+) on Sunday, June 14th at 11:00 am PST. You can find the channel via the OPB Website

Students who submitted custom content (i.e. picture and message) can find them included as part of the online broadcast. The OPB+ televised ceremony will include a general recognition of the graduating class.
