Congratulations to the Class of 2023!

Graduates, family, friends, and fellow students from Rutgers University–New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences are invited to join the 257th Anniversary Commencement on Sunday, May 14, 2023.  President Jonathan Holloway will preside over the ceremony and formally confer the degrees of graduates and honorary degree recipients.

We invite students from the schools affiliated with Rutgers University–New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences and their guests to attend both events.

Commencement and Convocation Ceremonies

Rutgers University–New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences hold Commencement and school-based Convocation ceremonies once a year, in May. Most students who expect to receive degrees in October 2022, January 2023, May 2023, or August 2023 are eligible to participate in the May 2023 school convocation and Commencement events, but it varies by school. Contact your school directly if you have questions.
