Commencement is more than an academic tradition. It is a unique opportunity to commemorate your achievements as a student. It is a time to thank those who helped you along the way, and it is a milestone–a jubilant ceremony that closes one chapter of your life and opens a new one. We encourage you to join University of Maryland University College May 16 through May 18 as we celebrate your Commencement.
