Campus Access


Rutgers will not hold commencement ceremonies this May in order to protect our students and our loved ones from COVID-19. We recognize that this necessary decision is painful for the Class of 2020 and their families, as well as for our faculty and staff who have shared this journey to graduation with our students. We are working to find alternative ways to celebrate the achievements of students, and we will solicit your ideas as we move forward. This is an evolving process and we will continue to share information on our progress. Visit the commencement webpage for more details and for information about ordering or returning academic regalia.
