The university has decided to hold a special Bachelors Degree Conferment Ceremony.
The ceremony will be a full cap-and-gown affair, with students being acknowledged individually by the faculty for the earning of their degrees. Latin honors and the completion of minors will be acknowledged at the ceremony. We will invite a guest speaker, and in addition, we will ask each of the colleges to select a graduate to speak to the graduates, faculty and guests.
Photos will be taken of all graduates.
University of the Sciences Legacy Families
A Legacy is an alumnus or student in a family with one or more generations of University of the Sciences/Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science graduates (living or deceased). This includes alumni and students who are related by marriage.
If you are a legacy, we invite you to have your photograph taken with your legacy family member. To schedule a time, please call 888.857.6264.
The number of guests that each graduate can invite will be determined by the number of graduates who petition to participate in the ceremony, and will be determined early in the spring semester. However, each student will be given a minimum of four (4) admission tickets for family and/or friends as well as 10 announcements.
