Commencement of the Graduate School will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2022, at 3 p.m.

The academic procession for Commencement will leave from the Webster Center and begin promptly at 2:40 p.m. The exercises will be held in the tent on the Upper Athletic Fields and will last approximately 2½ hours. Family and guests attending the graduate ceremony should be seated by 2:30 p.m.

Organizing a procession of more than 600 master’s degree recipients takes at least one hour. Therefore, we ask that all degree candidates assemble on the track in the Webster Center by 1:40 p.m., where beverages will be available. The class photo will be taken in the Staake Gymnasium at 1:30 p.m., just prior to assembling for the procession. Please wear your robes for this photo.

Please be aware that Babson’s bachelor degree ceremony will be held earlier in the day on May 14. The undergraduate ceremony will conclude by 12:30 p.m., and the Commencement tent on the Upper Athletic Fields will be reset for the graduate ceremony.

NOTE: Guests will not be allowed to enter the Commencement tent until 1:45 p.m. to prepare the tent for the master’s degree ceremony.

Tickets are not required for this ceremony. Guests also may view the exercises via live broadcast in the Carling-Sorenson Theater. For family and friends who cannot attend, the ceremony can be viewed online.

Caps, gowns, and tassels are furnished by the College at no charge to graduates and may be kept as souvenirs of this memorable occasion.

Regalia will be available at the campus store the week of May 13, Monday through Friday. Please check the campus store website for hours of operation.
