Welcome

Congratulations to the Class of 2021!

We look forward to welcoming you to campus on May 14th as we celebrate our graduates.

We are excited to announce that registration is now open for the 2021 Undergraduate Commencement Ceremonies! All graduates planning to attend Commencement must register, comply with testing requirements and wear a face covering to gain entry.

Welcome to the 2020/2021 Commencement Website. Here, graduates will find information about caps & gowns, graduate instructions, and awards. Additional information will be updated regularly, however, if you have specific questions, please contact the Office of External Relations and University Events at commencement@umass.edu or 413-577-1101.

 

Commencement Update 

As a direct result of Governor Baker’s announcement earlier this week that the Commonwealth is further reducing pandemic restrictions, we are now able to welcome a limited number of registered guests — two people per graduate — to our 2021 UMass Amherst commencement ceremonies on Friday, May 14. 

In accordance with Massachusetts commencement guidelines, all guests must be registered in order to attend commencement. If you have not yet registered for commencement, there’s still time to do so! Upon registration, guests will receive an email confirmation with a QR code to ensure a smooth check-in on May 14. 

Mask wearing and social distancing will be required of all attendees, including graduates and their guests throughout the ceremonies.

In an effort to ensure available parking and time to prepare the stadium between ceremonies, we ask all graduates and guests to arrive no more than an hour before your ceremony and to leave the stadium and parking lots immediately after your ceremony ends. Thank you for your consideration of all UMass Amherst graduates.

We look forward to celebrating with you and your guests.
