As you near the end of your college career, the Graduation Team can guide you toward finishing your degree on track and getting your diploma.
Degrees are awarded on May 31, August 31, and December 31 each year. All students are required to apply for graduation regardless of whether they will attend the annual ceremony. The Registrar’s Office will not know that you plan to graduate if you do not submit a graduation application.
UMass Boston holds two annual Commencement Ceremonies at the end of May; one for undergraduate students, and one for graduate students. These ceremonies honor students who graduated in December and all students applied for the May or August graduation dates. The ceremony date changes every year, and details are posted on the Commencement website as they are available.
