Congratulations to the Class of 2020
Smith School Commencement
There is not a Commencement Ceremony for the summer, however all summer graduates are invited to walk in the December Smith School Commencement ceremony. Please contact your advisor if you are interested.
There is not a Summer campus-wide Commencement Ceremony. Students interested in participating in the December University Campus-wide Commencement ceremony should visit www.commencement.umd.edu. During the University ceremony, students will not have their name read or 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.
