This ceremony gives graduates the opportunity to be recognized individually by college faculty and administration. Each graduating student's name is read prior to the presentation of a University of Massachusetts medal and a special farewell gift from the college. Graduates' time on stage will be broadcast on large video screens and captured by a professional photographer. 

Due to venue capacity limitations, tickets will be required for entry to this year's celebration. Each graduating student will be allotted four (4) tickets for guests. Tickets will be distributed through the Mullins Center Box Office in March 2024—students will be notified via email when their tickets are available.  For those who cannot attend in person, this year's celebration will be live-streamed and recorded for viewing after the event.
