The Ceremony

SUNY Cobleskill's 106th Commencement Ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. outdoors, rain or shine, adjacent to the Neal Robbins Field House. Please dress appropriately. 

Graduates will line up one hour before the Ceremony in the Field House. We ask only those participating in the ceremony enter the Field House in order to facilitate ceremony line up.

The duration of the ceremony will be approximately 2 hours.

Please remain standing during and after the National Anthem.

Once the ceremony is concluded, please remain standing at your seats until the end of the recessional. Moving toward the graduates before this causes congestion and detracts from the dignity of the occasion.

Wristbands for Family/Friends

Video and Photography

Guests may record and/or take photographs from their seats; however, in order to avoid obstructing the view of others, you are asked not to approach the stage area. SUNY Cobleskill has contracted with Grad Images, to take photographs of each graduate receiving his/her diploma from President Terenzio. Grad Images, will contact graduates via email regarding the possible purchase of these photographs. The College does not benefit financially from this arrangement; it is provided as a service to graduates and their families. You are not obligated to purchase the photographs.


We are very proud of our graduates' accomplishments! We look forward to meeting our graduates' families and friends on this very special day! It is the goal of the Office of Campus Events and Conferences and the entire SUNY Cobleskill community to make Commencement a smooth and memorable experience for our graduates. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
