Tiffany Trump is one step closer to becoming a lawyer after graduating from Georgetown Law on Saturday, May 16.
The 26-year-old bid goodbye to the prestigious university this weekend when a virtual commencement ceremony was held for graduates.
Though she wasn’t able to receive her diploma in person due to the pandemic, Tiffany celebrated her achievement on Instagram this weekend and was congratulated by her billionaire boyfriend Michael Boulos.
Ta-da! Tiffany Trump graduated from Georgetown Law School in a virtual ceremony this weekend
What it might have looked like: The ceremony was held online, but a fan account shared this image edited to show what Tiffany would look like in Georgetown Law’s graduation robes
Something different: Classes had moved online in March. Tiffany now has to take the bar exam to officially be a lawyer
Tiffany enrolled at Georgetown Law in 2017. She had taken a year off after graduating from University of Pennsylvania with a degree in sociology (with a concentration in law) and urban studies in 2016.
Tiffany shared a video that Georgetown created for its law graduates, writing: ‘Congratulations to my fellow Georgetown Law’s Class of 2020! We did it!’
Back in September, she marked her first day of her last year at the institution with a photo outside — a photo that would be tricky to recreate now due to the pandemic.
Georgetown Law moved to virtual learning on March 16, with classes meeting online at their normally scheduled day and time.
On Instagram on Sunday, Tiffany shared a video that Georgetown created for its law graduates, writing: ‘Congratulations to my fellow Georgetown Law’s Class of 2020!
‘We did it! We are now #Georgetownlawyers,’ she added.
Her boyfriend, billionaire heir Michael Boulos, also congratulated her on the social media.
‘Congratulates Tiffy!’ he wrote. ‘You’ve come a long way to get to this point and after all the hard work and sleepless nights, you more than deserve it, it’s only the beginning now, love you honey and congrats again!’
The beginning: Back in September of 2017, Tiffany had proudly showed off her study setup as she began her first year
According to the Georgetown Law website, the university held a ceremonial degree conferral on Saturday, and on Sunday paid tribute to graduates with a celebratory video.

Degrees will actually be conferred on June 4.
The school also promised to hold a future event for the students to ‘come together safely to celebrate the Class of 2020’ in person.
With her degree taken care of, Tiffany still has one important step left before actually becoming a lawyer: She’ll have to sit for the bar exam.
Typically, this would next be held in July, but many states are delaying the exam until the fall due to the pandemic.
After Tiffany passes the test, it’s anyone’s guess as to Tiffany’s future plans, as she certainly has numerous options available to her — and is known for being tight-lipped about her life.
It’s not even known where the first daughter will choose to settle down. While she could stay in the D.C. area near her father and older sister Ivanka, she may also move to New York to be near her mother, Marla Maples.
Tiffany already has an apartment in New York City, which her dad purchased for her after her graduation from Penn.
Or she may not live near family at all. Her boyfriend is based in London, and Tiffany could decide to move across the pond to live with him, or at least nearby.
There are quite a few career tracks she could take, too, as there are many ways to practice law.
Flashback: Tiffany was able to don her cap and gown when she graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2016
Ivy League education: She had majored in sociology (with a concentration in law) and urban studies before taking a year off prior to entering law school
Looks different now: Her whole family turned up to celebrate her that day four years ago, but were unable to do so this time due to the pandemic
She may not practice law at all, though, and might opt to put her education to use in a different way, perhaps following in her sister’s footsteps and working for her father in the White House, or taking on a role in his company.
Until now, the first daughter has provided few clues as to her future plans, avoiding the press and posting sparingly on social media.
Ahead of her first year at Georgetown, she hinted to George Stephanopoulos that she might join The Trump Organization after getting her law degree.
‘Of course, I’m interested. I’m applying to law school though so I like to bring — a different kind [of] skill set to the company,’ she said.
Earlier this month, Tiffany’s mom Marla revealed that Tiffany had finished her final law school exam while sharing a photo of the flowers her daughter had given her for Mother’s Day.

‘Happy Mother’s Day Mom! I love you so much and wish that we could be together!’ she wrote. ‘I can’t believe I just finished law [exams]’
‘I am so, so proud of my beautiful daughter as last night she finished her final law school exam! Hallelujah! The Best Mothers’ Day gift of all. Though I do adore these beautiful red & pink roses and the delicious dinner that just arrived,’ she captioned the image.
‘Thank you my girl with all my heart for blessing me with the most Divine gift ever, being your mom.’
The first half of Tiffany’s message to her mom was visible in the photo, and in the note, she expressed how she wished they could be together.
‘Happy Mother’s Day Mom! I love you so much and wish that we could be together!’ she wrote. ‘I can’t believe I just finished law [exams].’
Marla admitted in February that she can’t wait for Tiffany to officially be finished with law school, explaining during an appearance on Carlos & Lisa show on BeondTV that Tiffany is always telling her that she is ‘studying’ — so she was looking forward to when her daughter was done so she could ‘see more of her.’
