Congratulations to the Class of 2022/2023
In April, President Pines sent a letter to the campus community stating that the University would be celebrating all graduates from the academic year together every spring. This change means that moving forward, all August, December, and May graduates will be celebrated together at a commencement ceremony held in late May.

Campus-Wide Commencement Ceremony
Date: Monday, May 22, 2023
Students should visit www.commencement.umd.edu for more information about the University of Maryland campus-wide commencement ceremony as it becomes available. During the campus-wide ceremony, students will not have their name read or and will not walk across the stage.
Degrees will be posted to the student's record 4-6 weeks after end of the semester.
Diplomas are mailed approximately 6 weeks after degrees are noted on student transcripts. However, diplomas will not be sent if a student has an outstanding financial obligation to the University (parking tickets, overdue books, or unpaid tuition bills). Student diplomas will be mailed to the permanent address listed in the University system. For permanent address changes, students should update their address through the Registrar.
Contact the Diploma Office (301-314-8270) for questions regarding a diploma not received 6 weeks following the semester’s completion, or if you must change the address of where your diploma should be mailed.
