International travelers who wish to attend BU Commencement may be able enter the U.S. in a visitor status, such as B-2 “Visitor for Tourism” or WT “Visa Waiver for Tourism.” For this type of visit, the graduating student may need to request a Letter of Invitation to assist them in applying for a visitor’s visa.

For those unable to join us on-campus, the All-University Commencement Ceremony and Baccalaureate Service will be livestreamed on this website. If school & college convocations are livestreamed, it will be on the school & college websites.
