Frequently Asked Questions:
Is this the same as University Commencement? No, the SAS Convocation is different than the 256th Annual University Commencement, which is on Sunday, May 15th. The University Commencement ceremony will confer degrees on all New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences graduates but does not include individual student recognition. Convocation events are school-specific and will recognize graduates individually by name.
How many guests can I bring? Do I need to register them? In order to accommodate all SAS graduates and their families and friends, graduates are limited to 4 guests. Guests do not need to be registered. Tickets will be issued to graduates in the coming weeks.
What COVID-19 protocols do we need to follow? Current policy is that guests will need to follow University protocols, which means guests must show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR Covid test within 72 hours of the event. These protocols are subject to change before May 17th.
What’s an RUWalking Card and how do I get it? The RUWalking card is used to identify individual graduates as names are called when crossing the stage. A link to access your RUWalking card will be sent to your Rutgers email address closer to the event date.
Where do I get regalia? Regalia can be ordered online here by April 22nd.
