Thomas Edison State University’s 49th Annual Commencement Ceremony will be held on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021.

To Our 2021 Graduates:

Please accept our sincere congratulations on earning your degree!

Thomas Edison State University’s 49th Annual Commencement Ceremony will be held on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021. At this time, we are planning to hold our traditional in-person ceremony at the Cure Insurance Arena in Trenton, NJ.

University leadership will continue to monitor state and federal guidelines concerning COVID-19 protocols associated with large in-person events and social gatherings to determine if plans for an in-person ceremony will need to be adjusted.

Graduates who were eligible to walk during the 2020 Fall Commencement will be receiving a separate communication about their interest in attending the 2021 Ceremony.

All eligible graduates from the graduating classes below will receive an emailed invitation in July 2021, with a link to RSVP.

  • 2020 December
  • 2021 March
  • 2021 June
  • 2021 September (invitations will be sent as students are certified for graduation)

Additional information will be sent to all eligible attendees this summer.

What’s the difference between ‘Graduation’ and ‘Commencement’ at TESU?
Although the University’s Board of Trustees confers degrees quarterly on four graduation dates each year, there is only one annual Commencement ceremony. All graduates receiving their degrees during the four previous quarterly graduations are invited to celebrate with their family and friends at this annual event. TESU traditionally holds Commencement each September in Trenton, N.J.

The University recognizes your significant achievement and wishes you the best as you commemorate the occasion with family and friends.

For more information contact the Office of the Registrar at (609) 984-1180 or commencement@tesu.edu.
