Commencement Update 2021

On February 5, 2021, UMass Dartmouth announced its Commencement plans for the Class of 2021 and provided an update to the Class of 2020.

This year, the combined undergraduate and graduate ceremony will take place virtually on Saturday, May 15, 2021. The UMass Law virtual commencement ceremony will take place on Monday, May 17, 2021.

With the current conditions of the pandemic, the University is unable to safely host large in-person events, but UMass Dartmouth remains committed to an on-campus Class of 2020 and 2021 celebration once federal and Massachusetts health guidelines and safety protocols allow.
