All Rutgers University and Rutgers School of Public Health graduation activities are suspended. This includes our end-of-year Student Award Ceremony and Delta Omega Induction, the Rutgers School of Public Health Convocation Ceremony, and Rutgers University Commencement.

To honor our graduates, the Rutgers School of Public Health will be sending each graduate a special commemoration package, which will include a Convocation program listing the graduate’s name. We will also recognize our awardees and graduates in a special “graduation edition” of the Rutgers School of Public Health’s monthly newsletter, the Scarletter. October 2019, January 2020, and May 2020 graduates will also be invited to participate in the School’s May 2021 Convocation Ceremony.

Regalia Refunds for RBHS: Barnes and Noble and the regalia vendor, Oak Hall, have both agreed to issue refunds for regalia that was ordered for direct shipment to homes or for store pick-up. For regalia orders that chose the ship to home option, contact Oak Hall. For regalia orders that chose the ship to store option, since the Governor of New Jersey has ordered all non-essential retail operations to close, all ship to store orders will now be canceled and refunds will be automatically processed.

Purchasing Regalia: If you would still like to purchase regalia even though Commencement and Convocation are suspended, please visit this webpage.
