Commencement Information 2016

Congratulations to the members of the 2016 Graduating Class!

You have worked very hard to earn your degree and you must be looking forward to celebrating this accomplishment with your faculty, family and friends!

Commencement will be held at the Rhode Island Convention Center, One Sabin Street, Providence, RI, on Sunday, May 1, at 11 a.m. (This is NOT the same building as the Dunkin Donuts Center, which is also located in Providence.) Directions can be found at: http://www.riconvention.com. Graduates must arrive by 9:45 a.m. The ceremony typically lasts 2 ½ hours.

If you have not ordered your cap & gown please contact Caitlin Beagan before 4 p.m. on Friday, April 29, by phone at 401-739-5000 or 1-800-736-7744, ext. 3431. A cap and gown representative will also be on the East Greenwich campus Saturday, April 30, from noon to 3 p.m., and at the Convention Center the morning of the ceremony to handle any last minute orders for graduates.

• All graduates can pick up their cap & gown orders in the Student Lounge on the East Greenwich Campus on: Saturday, April 30, noon – 3 p.m.

Graduates who are members of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK)  and the Alpha Chi Honor Society may choose to purchase a stole at the NEIT Bookstore or online from PTK (www.ptk.org) or Alpha Chi (www.alphachihonor.org) signifying their membership in the honor society. (NEIT graduates who graduate with honors will not receive a stole unless they are a PTK or Alpha Chi member and purchase one; however, their names will be announced  “with honors” when they cross the stage.) If you have questions or would like to join one of the honor societies, contact Karen Arnold Schultz, Assistant Provost, in the Office of Teaching and Learning at karnold@neit.edu or 401-739-5000 ext. 3322.

Commencement will be a very special event for our graduates and their families. You may bring as many guests as you would like.

Information with more details about Commencement will be mailed to the homes of the graduates and posted online.  If you do not receive information in the mail by mid-April, please contact Caitlin Beagan at 401-739-5000 ext. 3431 or at cbeagan@neit.edu.
