We are looking forward to seeing you at the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School Convocation ceremony on Monday, May 14, 2018. Below you will find details concerning the event.

If you have your own attire, please bring your attire with you to NJPAC.   If you rented attire, you can pick it up in the Registrar’s Office or attire will be waiting for you at NJPAC.  If you are attending University Commencement and/or other events that precede NJMS Convocation, you must pick up your attire according to the schedule below.  The Registrar’s Office will distribute attire in our office, MSB B-640, according to the following schedule:

If you ordered attire through the Registrar’s Office, please be sure to leave your attire in the Faculty Robing Room prior to exiting NJPAC so that it may be returned to the rental company.  If you do not return your rented attire, you will be assessed a replacement fee.  If you attend only the Commencement Ceremony on Sunday, May 13th, you must return your attire to the Registrar’s Office by Wednesday, May 16th.
