Again this year, we are projecting the largest graduating class in UMass Lowell history. Because of this growth, seating has become extremely limited for both graduates and their guests at the Tsongas Center, raising concerns about comfort and safety for everyone.
Therefore, we will make the following adjustments to try to address these concerns while doing what we can to make this day an enjoyable one for graduates and their guests:
- Commencement Ceremonies: This year, we will hold two Commencement Ceremonies, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The morning ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 14, followed by the afternoon ceremony at 2:30 p.m. the same day. Both ceremonies will take place at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell.
- Tickets: Graduates themselves do not need tickets, but their guests do. if you have not received your tickets yet, please email Commencement@uml.edu.
- Video Streaming: As in years past, the Commencement Ceremonies will be streamed on the web in their entirety for those with internet access. Watch live on desktop, mobile and close-captioned during the ceremonies.
If you have questions, please email Commencement@uml.edu.
