Current UMD students who expect to complete requirements for a degree during Summer Session must apply for August graduation. There are specific instructions and deadlines associated with applying for August graduation for both undergraduate and graduate students. To learn more, see Office of the Registrar-Graduation Information.
There are no official campus-wide ceremonies or commencement for students graduating in August. An academic unit may hold an informal recognition. Other academic units may permit participation in either the May or December campus-wide ceremonies. In all cases, the student should contact their academic advisor for such information. Students who are given permission to participate in either the May or December ceremonies should visit UMD Commencement Ceremony to learn how to order regalia and more.
