Graduation- LA

Dear NYFA LA community,

Since the onset of the pandemic, we have continued to celebrate the accomplishments of our degree graduates in a virtual graduation ceremony. For both the Spring and Summer Graduations, we organized an online Graduation Ceremony with families watching from all over the world. While this is not how we or our graduates imagined celebrating their final semester, we’ve worked intentionally to produce a virtual Graduation Ceremony that is both personal and meaningful.

Since we still cannot assure it will be physically safe for all of us to be together for an in-person graduation ceremony, our next Graduation Ceremony on January 16, 2021, will also be virtual. For the health and safety of our NYFA community, we’ve made the following adjustments to the January 2021 graduation ceremony:

  • Graduation for degree graduates (AFA, BA, BFA, MA, & MFA) will occur on January 16th, 2021 in a live virtual ceremony.
  • Degree graduates can also participate in the next in-person ceremony once scheduled. While currently there is no in-person Graduation ceremony scheduled, degree graduates can select to be notified once in-person Graduation ceremonies resume.

With this adjustment to the January 2021 graduation ceremony, we are determined to continue to create new opportunities to celebrate our graduates. We want to honor this important milestone the best we can given these unpredictable and difficult circumstances.

All degree graduates (AFA, BA, BFA, MA, and MFA) were emailed and asked to complete the Fall 2020 Graduation: Diploma & Ceremony RSVP form by November 27, 2020.

Students completing their One-Year Certificate can contact their academic department for questions regarding their final screening and graduation.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact graduationevents@nyfa.edu.

Stay safe and be well,

Dr. Susan Ashe, Dean of Students
& the NYFA Graduation Committee
