Iona's 2022 Commencement Ceremony May 21

Congratulations to the Class of 2022! 

Iona College looks forward to celebrating the Class of 2022 at the 78th annual Iona College Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 21, 2022! Two ceremonies will take place on Mazzella Field on Iona’s campus. Registered and approved graduates will receive tickets for at least two guests. The ceremonies are slated to begin at: 

  • 10 a.m. Undergraduate Student Ceremony
  • 3 p.m. Graduate Student Ceremony

Depending on the final number of graduates and the status of the pandemic, the number of guests allowed per graduate could increase. In the event of extreme weather, the ceremonies will be held as scheduled in the Hynes Athletics Center Arena. 

Please also save the date for Friday, May 20, 2022, as the annual Honors Convocation and Baccalaureate Mass will be held on campus.
