Commencement will be virtual this May, and this was a decision made by the RU President’s Office. For more information about commencement, please visit: RBS Graduate Student Commencement Website
The deadline to apply for graduation has now expired. In order to apply for May, please contact your academic advisor before completing the steps below. There is no guarantee students who apply after March 1st will be included in May Commencement (we will do our best to include you).
How to apply for graduation:
Message for students graduating May 2021:
Dear MBA Students,
Part-Time MBA Students – May Graduates:

Full-Time MBA Students – May Graduates:

· I plan to graduate in May 2021, and I am in the Full-Time MBA Cohort based in Newark.
If so, apply for Graduation immediately, as the deadline is March 1, 2021.
How? There are 3 simple steps:
Step 1: Online Diploma Application
· Choose the following two options. Do NOT choose anything else:
o “Degree Applying For” = MBA – Master of Business Administration
o “Curriculum Applying For” = 135 – Business Administration
Please Note: When you apply for your diploma, there is no place to enter a Concentration, as Concentrations do NOT appear on student diplomas. When we certify your degree, we will submit your Concentrations to the Registrar’s Office to post on your official transcript.
Step 2: Degree Completeness Worksheet
Full-Time Students: e-mail form to MBA@Business.Rutgers.edu.
Part-Time Students: email form to your academic advisor:
Kathleen Price (New Brunswick/Morristown) Kprice@business.rutgers.edu
Jillian Ryan (Newark/Jersey City) Jryan@business.rutgers.edu
For those students who completed the STEM designation: Please indicate this at the bottom of the form. Please put asterisks next to the courses that are STEM.
Finally, all details about your Commencement ceremony can be found at:
Graduation for Graduate Students. This website will update in April.
We only have one Commencement Ceremony in May, so please bookmark this site.
At this time, Commencement will be held remote (online). More information will be coming shortly from your assistant dean.
May-dated diplomas will be available in late June/early July. Your degree and concentration(s) will be added to your transcript during the month of June. The University Registrar will mail your diploma to the mailing address you indicated on the diploma application.
