Commencement Updates

March 10, 2021

We have begun planning for in-person Commencement ceremonies in May. Health and safety precautions will determine precisely what these ceremonies will look like. While we are very excited to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates in person, we must keep everyone’s safety at the forefront of all decision making. The events will be safe, socially distanced, open-air, outdoor ceremonies on Vendetti Field (rain or shine). It is not clear yet whether families and guests will be able to attend; much is dependent on CDC and Commonwealth of Massachusetts COVID-19 guidelines. We will, however, live stream the events so family and friends may watch from home.

Our tentative plans are as follows:
 Friday, May 14 – Graduate & Professional Studies Commencement for both 2020 and 2021 graduates. Time TBD.
 Saturday, May 15 – Undergraduate Class of 2021; likely split into multiple, smaller ceremonies. Times TBD.
 Sunday, May 16 – Undergraduate Class of 2020. Time TBD.

A link for Cap and Gown orders for the Class of 2021 will be emailed to eligible graduates shortly. Any 2020 graduate who still needs regalia should contact
