Commencement will be taking place on May 17 for graduate students and May 19 for undergraduate students. This year, the commencements will take place indoors at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and the Prudential Center.
Margaret McCorry, Associate Vice President for University Relations talks about her hope for commencement this year, “ My hope is that no matter how we have to celebrate, whether in person or virtually, students and families will be able to celebrate their incredible accomplishments on Commencement day, as well as in family settings at home or elsewhere in the days and weeks following.”
If there are any questions or concerns regarding commencement, students can email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (908) 73-REGME.
