Commencement Weekend

Commencement Weekend at UMass Lowell begins with Commencement Eve festivities where we celebrate our achievements and honoring student award recipients and distinguished guests, all as we raise money for student scholarships to continue UMass Lowell's legacy of learning.

On Commencement Day, we hold two ceremonies, one at 9 a.m. and the other at 2:30 p.m., at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell. In the 9 a.m. ceremony, students in the colleges of Fine Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences along with the Manning School of Business and the Graduate School of Education will have their diplomas conferred. Engineering, Kennedy College of Sciences, the College of Health Sciences and Intercampus Program students will graduate in the 2:30 p.m. ceremony. 

Each year, the university produces a Commencement Book, which is distributed on Commencement Day.
