Meredith College Commencement Update

Because of ongoing COVID-19 concerns, Meredith College is continuing discussions on how best to celebrate commencement for the Class of 2021.

Class of 2020: Meredith celebrated the Class of 2020 virtually in a variety of ways in May 2020, including through our meredith.edu/celebrate site. Decisions about additional celebrations are still being made.

Members of either class who are interested in purchasing caps and gowns may visit the Campus Store or call (919) 760-8545 for assistance. Graduates interested in having portraits taken on campus should contact Meredith Events at events@meredith.edu or (919) 760-8533. (Please note, students and graduates may remove their face coverings while in individual, scheduled, outdoor photo shoots, including cap and gown portraits, as long as appropriate physical distance is maintained.)

We appreciate the patience of our students, graduates, and their families as the College navigates the pandemic. Once plans are finalized, members of each class will be notified by email and this site will be updated with additional details.

Traditions

Meredith College has many commencement weekend traditions, including a Baccalaureate worship service, Class Day ceremony, and special activities for graduates and families.
