2018 University Commencement 

Sunday, May 13, 2018 10 a.m. 
High Point Solutions Stadium, Piscataway 

Graduating from Rutgers means enjoying a multi-part ceremony. One is University Commencement, a giant celebration with your fellow students from across the entire university and all three campuses. There, you will see your name scroll on the stadium ribbon board and enjoy special videos such as graduate shout-outs to family and friends, Honorary Degree recipient tributes, photo montages, and more. With thousands of guests saluting the culmination of your achievement, it will be a day you will never forget. Tickets are not required to attend the event at the stadium; however, a Commencement Parking Hangtag is required for those who wish to park on campus on May 13.  

Parking

In March 2018, students must register online for up to two free Commencement Parking Hangtags for themselves and their guests. Note that parking permits issued by Rutgers Department of Transportation Services for use during the year will not be valid for parking on campuses in Piscataway and New Brunswick on Sunday, May 13.
