Ph.D. candidates will receive their diplomas at the Commencement ceremony. Ph.D. candidates not participating in the ceremony may pick up their diplomas in the Graduate School beginning December 19. The office is open from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Master’s diplomas are not distributed at the ceremony. Instead, diplomas will be mailed to the student’s permanent address eight weeks after the conferral date. Graduates who anticipate a change of address should verify/update their permanent address, by logging into their my UMBC account and under “Profile” verify/update their address.
