Spring Commencement 2024

Gifts for Grads

Commemorate Your Achievement


Your Class Ring

Next to your diploma, an official class ring can serve as the most treasured reminder of your accomplishments at UMGC. All who wear one share a collective sense of pride and achievement. The unique design of the UMGC ring symbolizes your bond with past and future alumni, shows pride in your alma mater, and reflects a proud tradition of lifelong learning.

The UMGC ring features elements that represent your academic journey with us, such as the UMGC seal, your graduation year, and the degree you earned. Wear it with pride!

Announcements and Diploma Frames

Some might consider graduation announcements old fashioned—but we think they are still a nice way to formally let your loved ones know about your achievement. This is especially true for those friends and family who can't attend your ceremony but might want to wish you well.

And there's no better way to proudly display your diploma than inside of a well-made frame. University Frames, in partnership with Balfour, offers several elegant choices.

Balfour, Inc., is our official provider of class rings, diploma frames, and commencement announcements.
