Graduating Students

Congratulations! Here is the information you'll need to prepare for the big day. 

Commencement Surveys

Invitations to participate in September, March, or May Commencement ceremonies will be sent one month before the ceremony to Simmons email addresses for current students and to personal emails addresses of record for those whose degrees have already been conferred. Please RSVP by the date indicated in your invitation. If you have not received an invitation, please check your spam folder before contacting [email protected].


Regalia for Bachelors and Master’s degree candidates is available for sale online before each ceremony. Doctoral regalia can be rented or purchased online according to the listed deadlines. Learn more about regalia.

Class Rings, Announcements and Diploma Frames

Please visit the Balfour website to place an order for class rings or graduation announcement packages. They can also be reached at 1-877-BALFOUR with any questions.

The bookstore offers a variety of frames designed to fit your Simmons diploma. Celebrate your achievement and find the frame that suits your success. Shop our collection.


Students whose degrees are conferred in May can pick their diplomas up at Commencement. Diplomas of those not attending May Commencement and of those whose degrees are conferred at other times during the year are mailed directly to the student's preferred address. Learn more about diplomas and transcripts.

Live Streaming

Each ceremony will be streamed live and the link will be provided on the Commencement landing page on the day of Commencement and can be viewed from anywhere in and outside of the city.
