Celebrating the Classes of 2020 and 2021

Celebrating USC Annenberg’s Graduating Classes of 2020 and 2021

USC will host commencement ceremonies to confer the degrees of graduates for the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Socially distanced ceremonies will take place at a limited capacity. The ceremonies will take place twice a day from May 14 through May 25. The date and time of USC Annenberg’s ceremony in the Coliseum will be assigned once RSVPs are received from all graduates.

In addition to the in-person ceremony, USC Annenberg will also host a virtual celebration for the Class of 2021 on Thursday, May 13. More information on this event, including the time, will follow.

Further questions may be directed to University Events at acevents@usc.edu.
