Congratulations Union College Graduates!

We are delighted to announce that Union College plans to host an outdoors (rain or shine), in-person Commencement ceremony for the Class of 2021 at 10 a.m. on June 13, 2021.  

In support of Union College’s sustainability efforts, the Commencement regalia - named GreenWeaver® - is made of fabric spun from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. For every Union cap and gown ordered, an average of 25 plastic bottles will have been used to manufacture the cap and gown. 

The cost of the regalia is covered by the College, but the S&H and any accessories purchased are the responsibility of the student. 
If you prefer not to order online, you can pick up your cap & gown at the Union Bookstore between May 20 – June 11, 2021
Please see for more details.

THIS SITE IS FOR 2021 GRADUATES ONLY.  Please note that Class of 2020 graduates participating in a ceremony on June 20, 2021, must contact
