For guaranteed seating under the tent, ticket holders must be at the Commencement tent on the Upper Athletic Fields by 9:40 a.m.

Undergraduate seniors can pick up their tickets in the spring, dates and locations will be shared at a later date.

In order to participate in Commencement, all degree candidates must log into the Babson Student Hub, where there will be a designated portlet for the Commencement Clearance Process.

Candidates will view and complete necessary requirements.

Degree candidates will be emailed prior to the site opening at their Babson email address.

Commencement of the Undergraduate School will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2024.

The academic procession for Commencement will leave from the Len Green Recreation Athletic Complex (LGRAC). 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 9:30 a.m.

Organizing a procession of more than 600 degree recipients takes at least one hour. Therefore, we ask that all degree candidates assemble by 8 a.m. The class photo will be taken at 9 a.m., just prior to assembling for the procession. Please wear your robes for this photo.

Check-in for all in-person Commencement experiences will take place at the Len Green Recreation Athletic Complex (LGRAC). Please have your Babson OneCard or photo ID. There will be nowhere to store bags or luggage; please bring only what you plan to carry.

Note: Tickets will not be available for pick up until all requirements have been fulfilled through the Commencement Clearing Process (CCP).

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

Cap and gowns will be available at the campus store from May 6–10.
