Family at Commencement

Wheelchair Accessibility

The doctoral commencement will be held in the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center at University of Maryland University College. Commencement for associate's, bachelor's, and master's degree graduates will take place in the Xfinity Center at University of Maryland, College Park. While both locations are wheelchair accessible, they do not provide wheelchairs for visitors. Please plan ahead.

Help at the Ceremony

UMUC staff members will be on hand to assist graduates and guests with special needs.

Sign language interpreters will translate each of the weekend ceremonies, and closed captioning will be provided. Interpreters will be provided at the doctoral ceremony if requested in advance.
