Commencement Exercises – Spring 2021

This spring’s commencement exercises will look different compared to previous years, but GMS is determined to celebrate each of you and your accomplishments in a new and safe way. Per the University’s guidance, our MD/PhD Convocation Ceremony and Master’s Convocation Ceremony will be virtual and livestreamed on May 15th, at the same time as all other BU ceremonies.

In addition to the pre-recorded ceremonies, as noted in President Brown’s April 16 letter, BU will hold two in-person Commencement events on May 16 at Nickerson Field —one ceremony at 9:30 am specifically dedicated to our graduate students, and a second ceremony at 2 pm for our undergraduate students.

Registration opens April 30th at 7am EDT for In-Person “Advanced Degree” Graduates School Commencement Event at Nickerson Field.

Finally,  programs may choose to hold virtual celebrations. Please confirm with your program director on which exercises your specific program is participating in. More information will be posted below as it become available.
