Commencement Weekend 2022

Commencement 2022 will take place on Monday, May 9th, 2022 at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA.

In academics, it is the ceremony in which degrees or diplomas are conferred on graduating students.  Your college commencement ceremony recognizes the completion of your degree and the start of your professional life.

We will celebrate the Baccalaureate Mass on campus on Sunday, May 8th, 2022.  Baccalaureate Mass is a Catholic liturgy, celebrating the Sacrament of the Eucharist and graduating students.  All members of the Anna Maria College community and their guests are invited to attend the Mass, regardless of faith.

Further details will be posted here by Thanksgiving.  If you have a question in the meantime, please email us at commencement@annamaria.edu or call the Student Affairs Office at 508-849-3388.
