Rutgers University–New Brunswick Convocations

School Convocations

For Students in the Schools of Rutgers University–New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences

Graduation is made up of two great events: Your school's convocation and University Commencement on Sunday, May 14, 2017, at 10 a.m. at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway.  Stadium gates open at 8 a.m. and students are asked to arrive no later than 9 a.m. to the marshaling area. Students in the schools affiliated with Rutgers University–New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences are encouraged to attend both events, along with your guests.

During your school's smaller convocation, you'll join with your graduating class and receive individual recognition. Please be sure to check with your school regarding guest and ticketing information for convocations.
