The Convocation Ceremony for bachelor’s candidates will begin at 1:30pm. Guests may begin to enter the front entrance of Agganis Arena at 1 p.m. Please plan to arrive no earlier than 1 p.m. due to an event prior to the Questrom Convocation Ceremony. Parking near Agganis Arena is expected to be limited. It is strongly encouraged for students and guests to take the BU Shuttle Bus or public transportation.

Students and their guests are invited to a reception at the FitRec Center (next to Agganis Arena) to celebrate the Class of 2017. The reception will begin immediately following the convocation ceremony, and signs will direct guests to the reception.

All Questrom students completing their degrees in January 2017, May 2017, or September 2017 are invited to participate. Students will be able to pick up their diploma at the reception.

Master’s & Doctoral Candidates & Guests

The Convocation Ceremony for Master’s & Doctoral Candidates will begin at 6:00p.m. Graduates should arrive at the the Black Box Student Theater Entrance (plaza between Agganis and Fit Rec) no later than 5:15p.m. It is very important that you arrive on time as you risk being lined up out of order or not being able to participate in the ceremony at all.

Guests may arrive at the main entrance of Agganis Arena no earlier than 5:00p.m. as there are other ceremonies earlier in the day. There is no limit to the number of guests that may attend.

Students who plan to complete their degree requirements in May 2017 or September 2017 and those who completed their degree requirements in September 2016 or January 2017 are eligible to participate in the May 2017 Commencement Ceremony.

A reception will be held for graduates and their guests at the Fitness and Recreation Center (FitRec), next to the Arena at 915 Commonwealth Avenue, immediately following the ceremony (approximately 8:00p.m.).
