Graduation

The University of Massachusetts Amherst awards graduate degrees in February, May, and September. Since paperwork for graduation is required well before the degree date (click here for deadlines), please contact Leeanne Leclerc, Graduate Program Manager, for the paperwork and to check on your degree requirements.
