Grad Walk is an intimate, in-person, walk-through graduation experience, where your name will be called as you walk across a formal commencement stage in regalia and meet university leaders while your family members and friends cheer you on from a viewing area directly in front of the stage.
Professional photographers will be on-site to take photos as you cross the stage, along with individual and group photos before and after your recognition. You and your guests can take photos and selfies on UMGC’s beautiful grounds and at photo stations decorated with the colors of the university and the state of Maryland, located around UMGC headquarters.
You can also commemorate your achievements in a special Celebration Zone, meet UMGC Alumni Association representatives, and purchase UMGC apparel, gear, and other mementos. Our enthusiastic faculty and staff will be on hand to guide you and your guests through the UMGC Grad Walk experience.
