President Holloway has announced that the university and all schools will hold virtual ceremonies in 2021. While this is a disappointment, it was not unexpected due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. Nonetheless, your graduation is an important milestone that we want to celebrate with you and hope you will participate in the following events:

University Commencement:  The University wide Rutgers 255th Anniversary Commencement will take place on Sunday, May 16, 2021. Visit the Commencement site to see how you can participate in and view the event.

Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology Convocation: Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 10 am EST via ZoomWatch the digital recording here

GSAPP’s Class of 2021 has earned not only their prestigious degrees, but undoubtedly, a well-deserved celebration! Their perseverance, resilience, and dedication, despite unprecedented obstacles and challenges, have inspired us all. We look forward to coming together as “one GSAPP” in unity to recognize their contributions and commemorate their success!

GSAPP Students: Please use these Zoom links provided by your academic department for an informal good-bye to faculty and friends after the ceremony.  

Don't Forget...

Rutgers University and the City of New Brunswick are once again partnering in Project Move Out to recover discarded furniture, appliances, and textiles to keep these items out of landfills and reduce our carbon footprint. Students may drop off their bulk waste items in Lot 30 behind the College Avenue Gym, May 24-28, from 7 am- 3 pm. Rutgers Student ID is required, and students must wear a mask and practice social distancing. Preregistration is not required. For more information, visit this link.
