Class of 2020

Happy grads with family

Commencement weekend is an opportunity for guests and graduates to celebrate the remarkable achievements of a student’s academic career at Tulane, and our commencement is unlike any other. Few classes in history have endured the level of disruption that the class of 2020 has experienced. As the first class in a century to graduate during a global pandemic, the opportunity to recognize and honor your academic accomplishments is on the horizon.


Class of 2020 graduates will be invited to join Crawfest activities on Saturday, April 23. Additional information about ticketing, schedule and musical guests will be updated on this site as details are confirmed.
