Congratulations to the class of 2013! The University of Maryland welcomes you to our December 2013 Commencement website, where graduates, family members and the university community may find information about the ceremonies.
These events are not only a celebration of the graduating students' accomplishments at the University of Maryland, but also an occasion to acknowledge our joint enthusiasm for their future endeavors. The university recognizes that commencement is a milestone in our graduates' lives and, as such, we strive to ensure that everyone enjoys their experience. The campus-wide ceremony will begin at 7:00 p.m. Saturday, December 21, and the individual college or school ceremonies will occur Sunday, December 22.
