Graduation 2017

Neuroscience Commencement Convocation

Sunday, May 21st, 9 a.m.
College of General Studies Auditorium
871 Commonwealth Avenue

At this ceremony, graduates will have their name read, walk across the stage, and receive their diploma. Graduates must arrive by 8:20 a.m. The ceremony begins promptly at 9 a.m. and lasts approximately one hour. A reception with refreshments will follow.

For Guests:
Tickets are not required, and seating is first-come, first-served. If a graduate has more than 5 guests, we ask that part of the group sits in the balcony, so that there is room for everyone’s immediate family on the lower level.

For Graduates:
If you plan to graduate in January 2017 or May 2017, you must complete the CAS Intent to Graduate form as soon as possible. At the bottom of the form, you must attach your Neuroscience Intent to Graduate sheet, signed by a neuroscience advisor.

Tickets are not required. However, we ask that you let us know if you plan to have more than 5 guests to ensure that there is enough seating for everyone’s immediate family.

Graduates should arrive in regalia, which is available online now and in-store at Barnes & Noble beginning April 24th.
