2020 Commencement Weekend Schedule »

The College of Humanities & Fine Arts (HFA) Senior Recognition Ceremony will to take place on Friday, May 8, 2020.  The ceremony will begin promptly at 1:00 p.m. in the Recreation Center prior to Undergraduate Commencement at McGuirk Stadium at 4:30 p.m.   

Tickets are NOT required and the number of guests is not limited. 

Commencement Medal

Unlike Commencement, the HFA Senior Recognition Ceremony recognizes graduates individually. Each graduate's name is read as they cross the raised platform and are presented with a University of Massachusetts commemorative medal, a tradition begun in 2007.  The Senior Ceremony is not meant to be a replacement for the University Commencement and students and their families are encouraged to attend both celebrations.

Detailed information about the ceremony can be found on the FAQ and For Students pages.
