The Campus-Wide Commencement Ceremony is scheduled to take place on Monday, December 20, 2021 at 4:00 pm. 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 2-4 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.
