An Online Virtual Event

SUNY Sullivan would like to recognize all of our graduates for their hard work, dedication and accomplishments. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic we are unable to host an in-person commencement ceremony this year. Alternatively, we have decided to create a Virtual Commencement Event to celebrate the Class of 2020!

At this time we do not anticipate holding an in-person commencement event before May of 2021.  It may be possible for graduates disrupted by the COVID-19 emergency to participate in the May 2021 commencement.  The college will reach out to our alumni as more information becomes available.
