Graduate and Guests

Eligibility

The next Adelphi commencement weekend is May 13–15, 2016.

The doctoral commencement will be held the morning of Friday, May 13. All candidates for the Doctor of Management degree will participate in a combined hooding and conferral ceremony.

Each of our three weekend ceremonies will recognize associate's, bachelor's, and master's degree graduates who completed their degree requirements in August and December 2015; winter 2016 MBA graduates; and associate's, bachelor's and master's candidates who have applied to receive their degrees in spring 2016.

Remember: Receiving your diploma is known as graduation at UMUC. You must apply to graduate before you are eligible to walk at Commencement 2016. If you haven't already, please check with your academic advisor about the graduation process to ensure that you don't miss the application deadline.

After applying, you can check your graduation status by contacting the Graduation Certification Team at graduationserv@umuc.edu or 800-888-UMUC (8682), ext. 2-2299.

RSVP

Eligible students (defined above) will be invited to RSVP for commencement using our online registration system in late February 2016. The Graduate School will communicate directly with candidates for the Doctor of Management degree. Associate's, bachelor's, and master's degree graduates and candidates will receive an e-mail invitation to select one of the three weekend ceremonies to attend.
