UMass Law Class of 2020 and 2021 Commencement Ceremony

As we’ve learned countless times over the past year, things change quickly. Commencement went virtual. Then conditions improved so we could celebrate on campus with limited capacity. With Governor Baker’s recent announcement that statewide COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted on May 29, UMass Dartmouth will be able to hold larger Commencement ceremonies and host up to 6 guests for each graduating student. We are excited to welcome more of your friends and family to cheer you on as you cross the stage.

We have moved the starting time of the combined Law Ceremony. Now, Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 UMass Law students will celebrate on Friday, June 11 at 9 a.m. on the Cressy Football Field at the Main Campus. Everyone at UMassD is excited to have you back on campus to honor your success!

Ceremony Schedule (Timing Approximate):

  • 8 a.m. – Graduate & Guest arrival
  • 9 a.m. – Ceremony begins
  • 10:30 a.m. – Ceremony ends

Though health and safety protocols will have changed, since this will be a large gathering, we encourage everyone to wear a mask - especially if you are not vaccinated.

For the Class of 2020, you should have received your regalia during the Summer of 2020. For the Class of 2021, you have likely already received your regalia. For those that need assistance please contact Terry Silvia at or 508.999.8190.

Please note that each graduate will be able to bring a maximum of six guests to attend the ceremony in person. We will also livestream the ceremony so that other family and friends can watch. All Commencement Ceremonies will be held rain or shine.
