Important Deadlines for Spring 2018 Graduation

The priority deadline for Spring 2018 Graduation Applications is Friday, March 30, 2018, but please note that we will review graduation applications until the end of the Spring ’18 semester. If you wish to graduate this Spring, but have not yet submitted an application to the Registration and Enrollment office, please do so AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Graduates who submit an application after Monday, April 30, 2018 will not have their names in the commencement program.

Students that have completed degree requirements during the Spring ’18 term that submit a graduation application after May 15th (not March 30th) will be processed and awarded as Summer 18’ grads.

Student Accounts
Students with outstanding financial obligations with the College should address this issue as soon as possible as this may impact your eligibility to participate in Commencement. Students should contact the Office of Student Accounts for additional information at (781) 239-2540. Students with additional obligations such as overdue library books or athletic equipment are encouraged to contact the appropriate offices.

Actual diplomas will not be given out at Commencement. They will be mailed to the graduates’ addresses.
