The health and safety of the Siena College community is our most important priority for Commencement celebrations. As such, please note the following: 

  • Registration will be required for all on campus Commencement weekend activities. Each graduate will be able to register their family members through the website registration page. Certain events are limited based on space capacity. These events will be noted on the registration page. 
  • All graduates and guests attending any Commencement event on campus MUST show either proof of vaccination for COVID-19 and accompanying government issued ID or wear a mask while indoors. 

Proof can be shown on your phone or a paper print out. The NYS Excelsior Pass App will be permissible but we advise that you have a backup of your record on your phone or a paper print out. Please click here for more information regarding the NYS Excelsior Pass App.

Entry to the event MUST be denied to any attendee who fails to meet these requirements. 

There will be absolutely no exceptions to these requirements due to Albany County health regulations. Please plan accordingly so that you may be admitted to your event!

The ceremonies will be livestreamed on this page so that additional family members and friends can join in the ceremony virtually.
