Excelsior College Announces Commencement 2022

Excelsior College is excited to announce it will hold an in-person Commencement ceremony on Friday, July 8, 2022, in Albany, N.Y., at the Times Union Center (planned to be renamed as MVP Arena in 2022).

Graduates from the Classes of 2020 and 2021 are invited to join the Class of 2022 at this special celebration. The new location of the Times Union Center allows space for graduates from all three years as well as their loved ones to attend.

“We are thrilled to celebrate Commencement in-person again and to extend the invitation to three years of Excelsior graduates,” said David Schejbal, president of Excelsior College. “The Times Union Center provides the space needed for our graduates and their families who travel to Albany, N.Y., from around the country and the world for Commencement after completing their degree online.”

Excelsior College is the largest, fully online college in New York state and boasts students from all 50 states and more than 20 nations. A return to an in-person Commencement in 2022 allows graduates the opportunity to connect with fellow graduates, faculty, and staff. For those unable to attend, the event will be live streamed with engagement opportunities. All Commencement information will be shared at

“Commencement is one of the most important moments of an individual’s life, whether they’re embarking on a new career path or after working toward a degree to expand their current career opportunities. It’s a day that will be remembered and cherished for the rest of their lives, and it’s something that deserves an in-person ceremony and celebration when possible,” said Albany County Executive Daniel P. McCoy. “As an Excelsior alum myself, I’m truly thrilled that Albany County has the honor of hosting next year’s Commencement and the talented group of graduates at our county-owned arena, a facility with the size and resources needed for a truly memorable and safe event.”
