COVID-19 Updates and Information

Future Dates

Traditionally, the University rotates its morning and afternoon Commencement Ceremonies between the Colleges. Occasionally, instead of two ceremonies, there will only be one ceremony for the winter commencement.

The University's Commencement dates are driven by the common calendar of the University System of Maryland.

Please remember, however, that the University's College and Commencement times rotation schedules are subject to change. If you have any questions, please contact Christie Bohn at 301.687.4423 or
