Each year, Boston University holds an All-University Commencement
in May. The School of Public Health also holds an individual commencement ceremony. The SPH Commencement Ceremony will be held Saturday, May 17, 2014, at 2 p.m. at Agganis Arena, 925 Commonwealth Avenue.
The 2014 All-University Commencement Ceremony will be held Sunday, May 18, at 1 p.m. at Nickerson Field, 285 Babcock Street.
Students who graduate in September or January are encouraged to participate in the May commencement exercises. Please note that there are three graduation dates each year (September 25, January 25, and May), but there is only one commencement ceremony in May, which takes place on a Sunday specified by the Charles River Campus. Student Services functions as the event coordinator for the SPH Commencement.
January graduates are invited to a reception, held in early December, to celebrate their achievements. An email invitation will be sent to all January grads in November.
Students must apply to graduate!
