April 2017


We are all looking forward to celebrating the Class of 2017 on Sunday, May 14 at the Agganis Arena. We’ll be offstage handing out diplomas. We hope to see you there!

In the meantime, you can ensure your name is spelled correctly on your diploma. Log onto eCommon and select the Student Services tab, look for the Commencement menu, and choose Check Your Diploma Name.

If you have questions about the ceremony or ticketing, please visit the Commencement website.

Summer Course Pre-Approvals

Taking a course outside of Emerson this summer? Be sure to submit it for pre-approval via eCommon.

Having a course pre-approved is the only way to guarantee that it will transfer back into Emerson, and is the only way to be sure that it will fulfill a specific requirement.
