Are you a local graduate? The commencement fairs will help you prepare for your big day, all in one stop. In one visit, you can

  • Get fitted for your cap and gown and place your order
  • Order your class ring, announcements, and a diploma frame
  • Meet with UMUC's Career Services staff
  • Talk with representatives from your UMUC Alumni Association
  • Chat with a graduate academic advisor
  • Confirm your graduation status if necessary

Staff from Commencement Services will also be on hand to discuss all of your commencement needs and answer any related questions.
