May 2020 Graduation

We want to celebrate you!

Even if we can't be together right now, we are so very proud of the more than 800 Pacific University students who will graduate with bachelor's, master's or doctorate degrees this May. While this does not replace the pomp and circumstance you deserve, please join us to celebrate the achievements of the Class of 2020!

Virtual Commencement

Our virtual commencement videos — one for undergraduate students and one for graduate and professional students, just like a typical May — are now live on Pacific's YouTube channel and across other social media (look for @pacificu on your favorite platform). These videos will be pre-recorded and set up ready-to-watch in full — or to skip to you or your student's cohort. JBe sure to share your comments, congratulations to students, and thanks to faculty and friends in the comments.

Recognition Slides

After the virtual commencement debuts, individual slides for each graduating student will be available to look up, download, or share from this page.

All diplomas and undergraduate academic honor cords (i.e. Latin Honors and Phi Eta Sigma) have been sent out. These materials have been sent in separate mailings on different dates. Arrival dates will vary depending on where you live. If you are expecting honor cords, stoles, sashes, ribbons, pins, etc. from a department, organization, or graduate program please contact them directly.
