Prudential Center full of students during Spring Commencement 2017.

Commencement

Graduation is your opportunity to shine and to celebrate your accomplishments with family, friends, faculty and students. This year, Montclair State University undergraduate students will have two opportunities to celebrate the achievement of their degree – at the large, formal Commencement ceremony where degrees are conferred, held May 25, 2018 at Prudential Center in Newark, and at smaller, college-based Convocations held on campus. Graduate student Commencement is scheduled for May 22, 2018.

Convocations Postponed

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences Convocation scheduled for 3 p.m. Saturday, May 19 has been postponed to Wednesday, May 23 at 2 p.m., due to weather conditions.
