Congratulations to the Metropolitan College Class of 2020!

President Robert A. Brown has announced that Boston University is postponing its 147th Commencement and related events originally scheduled for May 14-17, 2020, to either late August or early October due to the coronavirus pandemic. As details become available, information will be shared on this site as well as on the University Commencement website.

Caps & Gowns

Online ordering of regalia for all degree candidates, including custom orders, is still available. The deadline for free home shipment has been extended. Place your order on the BU Regalia page.

If you already ordered and were expected to pick up your cap and gown on campus, please visit the Herff Jones Home Ship page to provide your home shipping information. Herff Jones will ship your cap and gown products to you for free.

If you choose to return your cap and gown (including tassel, stole, hood, or cords), you can do so by following the link to the Herff Jones College Regalia Returns page.


May 2020 Graduates: Due to commencement being postponed, all diplomas for May graduates will be mailed. You should have received email instructions from the Office of the University Registrar to update your diploma mailing address. If you haven’t already done so, please log in to the Student Link > Academics > Diploma & Graduation tab and select “No” to attending the commencement/convocation ceremonies*. You will then be prompted to insert your address. Please make this update by June 1.

Diplomas will be mailed in mid-June and you’ll receive access to your CeCredential around that time. Your diploma/CeCredential will only be released if you have an official graduation status, provided a diploma mailing address, and resolved all University financial obligations.

*You will be able to RSVP to the rescheduled commencement once a date is confirmed.

January/September graduates can find more information on the Diploma Order/Mailing Schedule on the Registrar site.


If you have any questions or require more information, please contact us by telephone at (617) 353-2980 or email us at Alternatively, undergraduates can contact Erik Linnane (please add link to my email) and graduate students can contact their academic department.
