College Commencement, University of Massachusetts at Amherst

May 26 - May 27

UMass Amherst is pleased to announce that the university has re-envisioned this year’s observance so the campus can celebrate the entire Class of 2023—both undergraduate and graduate students—at one ceremony on Friday, May 26, 2023 at McGuirk Alumni Stadium.

In addition, graduates will also be honored at a variety of special events. Immediately following Commencement on May 26, a Hooding Ceremony will be held at the stadium for doctoral candidates. Later in the day on Friday and throughout Saturday, Senior Recognition Ceremonies will be held across campus by schools, colleges and other university programs, where undergraduates can have their names called and walk across a stage to be individually recognized.
