    Bachelor’s Degree Conferment 

    University of the Sciences will honor students during our 9th Annual Bachelor’s Degree Conferment Ceremony on Friday, May 21, 2021. The virtual ceremony will be streamed beginning at 2 p.m. A pre-show will begin at 1:45 p.m. 

    The ceremony honors students enrolled in the University’s Doctor of Pharmacy, Doctor of Physical Therapy, and Doctor of Occupational Therapy programs who have earned enough credits to obtain a Bachelor of Science Degree. They will return to campus to continue in their doctoral degree programs.

    The ceremony will feature a keynote address from James Hoffman P’00 PharmD’01, Chief Patient Safety Officer at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Student speakers from Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Samson College of Health Sciences will also address the graduates. 


    Place your cap and gown order with our vendor.  The university provides the regalia at no cost to our graduates and it is yours to keep.  This year, regalia will ship directly to you from the vendor. In addition, as the Bicentennial Graduating Class, we are excited to announce that you will receive a commemorative zipper pull as part of your regalia order.
