Congratulations Class of 2020!


TUW continues to monitor the recent outbreak of COVID-19. The wellbeing of our students, their families, and TUW staff are a top priority. At this time, our in-person commencement ceremony scheduled for Sunday, July 12, 2020 at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall has been cancelled and will now be held virtually on Sunday, July 12, 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions in the state of California. We will continue to monitor Federal, State and Local Health agencies guidelines. More details on our virtual commencement ceremony will be provided as they become available.

Congratulations to the Graduating Class of 2020. All of us at Touro University Worldwide commend you on the hard work and determination that lead you to this great achievement. We also look forward to celebrating with you at the 9th Annual Touro University Worldwide Commencement Ceremonies.
