Montclair State University will hold its 2021 Commencement ceremonies on campus Monday, June 7 through Sunday, June 13.
Graduates who are eligible to participate are doctoral, master’s and bachelor’s candidates who have completed their graduation requirements in August 2020, December 2020, January 2021 or will have completed their requirements in May 2021.
Similar to the 2020 Commencement, there will be a number of ceremonies, all of which will be held at Sprague Field. The number of tickets allotted to each student will be determined closer to the event in an effort to maximize the attendance while ensuring compliance with the State of New Jersey’s directives regarding outdoor gatherings. As always, there will be strict safety protocols in place to help protect those in attendance.
Commencement ceremonies are assigned by college/school departments and/or major. Graduates may attend only the ceremony to which they are assigned. Graduates will receive their ceremony assignments when registration opens in mid-April. Please continue to watch your Montclair email for registration information.

The University is excited to announce these tentative plans as we wait for the State of NJ to announce Commencement guidelines.

We appreciate your patience and understanding in the coming months.
