Congratulations to the class of 2014! The University of Maryland welcomes you to our May 2014 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 10:00 a.m. Thursday, May 22, and the individual college or school ceremonies will occur at various times on Thursday, May 22 and Friday, May 23.

The colleges and schools will contact graduating students with specific information pertaining to the individual ceremonies. Contact the college or school directly for more information.
