May 16 Ceremonies Update

In a letter to graduates on April 16, President Robert A. Brown announced updates to the all-university in-person Commencement on Nickerson Field on May 16.

Boston University will hold two ceremonies on Sunday, May 16 – one ceremony at 9:30 am specifically dedicated to graduate/advanced degree students and a second ceremony at 2 pm for undergraduate students. Interest in attending on May 16 is so great that participation was predicted to surpass the capacity of Nickerson Field under the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and City of Boston maximum capacity guidelines, and consequently, the decision for two ceremonies was made to allow all interested students opportunity to attend. Read more about the update in the BU Today article.

Registration for the all-University ceremonies will begin on April 30. Registration closes on Sunday, May 9 at midnight EDT.
