Can UMass Amherst graduate students earn one of the undergraduate certificates?
I have an area of interest I want to explore in greater detail. Is it possible to earn credit towards my MBA while I work independently?
Can I participate in graduation ceremonies on campus?
All eligible students can participate in graduation ceremonies. Many of our online students have made only one trip to campus -- to graduate!
You are eligible if your last semester is Fall September 2013, Wintersession 2014, Spring 2014 or Summer 2014. Graduating seniors and their families can attend both the University Commencement ceremony and the Isenberg School Senior Celebration. Degrees will be conferred at commencement while seniors will receive a commemorative UMass Amherst medal at the Isenberg Senior Celebration.
We encourage graduating seniors and their families to attend both the university commencement and the Isenberg Senior Celebration.
