Rutgers University Commencement

Congratulations to the Class of 2021! Rutgers University is committed to giving each of our graduates a meaningful commencement experience as we honor your accomplishments. Graduates, family, friends, and fellow students from Rutgers University–New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences are invited to join this year’s Rutgers University Commencement festivities on Sunday, May 16, 2021. Please check back as more information will be shared soon.

Graduation also includes your school's convocation, held on or in the days surrounding Rutgers University Commencement. During your school's convocation, you'll join with your graduating class and receive individual recognition. Be sure to check with your school regarding information for convocations. We invite students in the schools affiliated with Rutgers University–New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences and their guests to attend both events.
