Planning to celebrate virtually with your family and friends? GSAPP has created a Celebration Toolkit including a 2020 Commencement playlist, virtual backgrounds and a quick guide to hosting a Zoom meeting. If you would like to register your Zoom call so that our faculty can drop in for virtual visits register by clicking details below.
Note that academic regalia will not be required as part of the Virtual Commencement ceremony; however, it can be purchased as a keepsake from Oakhill at the link below.

Please be reminded that all students planning to graduate in May from the Master of Architecture, Advanced Architectural Design, or Urban Design programs must submit a portfolio of representative work from each semester of studio in order to graduate.

Portfolios must be submitted by Sunday, May 10 at 2 PM. This is a strict deadline. Portfolios will also be used to assist the Faculty Awards Committee in determining the recipients of the various design prizes awarded to graduates.

Information about graduation prizes and requirements is here.
We are creating a photo collection for the graduating Class of 2020. Please submit photos of your year(s) spent at GSAPP. This collection will focus on social and personal aspects of your time here, rather than the academic work (i.e., socializing, personal process documentation, etc.). Please take the time to go through your phones, hard drives, etc and submit images via social media using #GSAPP2020 and tag @ColumbiaGSAPP. We will also accept submissions via email to commencement@arch.columbia.edu until Thursday, May 14th. Graduates can also show their school spirit using the Commencement Instagram filter and tag @columbia #RoarLions2020 #ColumbiaUniversity
Immediately following the commencement ceremony, GSAPP will present a web-based End of Year Show, featuring student work from across programs.
Will be mailed to the address on file with SSOL. Please review the instructions on the registrar’s website.

We invite you to join the Columbia University online directory. Take advantage of this valuable lifelong networking resource. Reach out to a former classmate, network with alumni in your region, share life updates and accomplishments, or offer up your expertise and thought leadership to others.

The Online Alumni Community is the only verified space to search for and connect with fellow Columbia alumni across Schools, degrees, graduation years, regions, interests, and more. Login in with your UNI at the alumni website.

If you have any questions, please email commencement@arch.columbia.edu
