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: University Commencement on Sunday, May 13, 2018, at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway and your school's convocation, held on or in the days surrounding Commencement. We invite students and their guests in the schools affiliated with Rutgers University–New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences to attend both events. During your school's convocation, you'll join with your graduating class and receive individual recognition. Be sure to check with your school regarding guest and ticketing information for convocations.
