Congratulations, UMGC Graduates!
University of Maryland Global Campus is pleased to host a variety of in-person and online graduation events in December 2023!
In-Person Graduation Event: Winter Grad Walk
Grad Walk is a unique, on-site experience for Winter 2023 graduates, guests, and other members of our UMGC family. At Grad Walk, the focus is on YOU, the graduate, and on your friends and family.
Graduates can select from multiple time slots during Grad Walk, December 15–17, 2023, for their individual recognition in the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center at UMGC’s administrative headquarters in Adelphi, Maryland. Watch our Grad Walk video and visit Guide to Grad Walk to learn more.
Celebrations That Come to You
For stateside graduates living anywhere around the world, UMGC will also host an on-demand ceremony, featuring a student speaker and singer and the conferral of degrees by UMGC President Gregory W. Fowler, PhD, on the Winter 2023 Commencement website.
In addition, an online “Gallery of Graduates” will showcase recognition slides that you can personalize and share via email and social media.
Finally, you will receive a Grad Pack in November that will contain UMGC goodies to help jump-start the festivities.
