2021 Virtual Commencement UMGC Asia

UMGC Asia 2021 Virtual Commencement Ceremony

Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 10:00am JST

Take the final, ceremonious step in your academic career by accepting your degree from UMGC.


Commencement is more than an academic tradition. It is a jubilant ceremony that closes one chapter of your life and opens a new one. If you are like a lot of soon-to-be college graduates, you have prevailed over at least a few challenges as you made your way through post-secondary education. We know you have worked hard to reach this significant milestone, and it's time for you to celebrate.

Commencement is a special opportunity to commemorate your achievements as a student and be recognized for what you have accomplished. It is a time to thank family, friends, and others who have helped you along the way. We have had to transition our in-person commencement ceremonies this year into one virtual ceremony due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. This is the right decision—appropriate and necessary to combat the spread of coronavirus disease and safeguard the health of our community members and guests.

While this may be disappointing, we recognize that commencement is a milestone for students as well as an annual highpoint for faculty and staff—an opportunity to celebrate together the hard work and remarkable achievements of graduates like you. To celebrate this year, we cordially invite all Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Spring 2021 graduates and their guests to join us for our UMGC Asia Virtual Ceremony on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 10:00am JST. Please do not pass up this chance to celebrate your educational milestone! More information on the virtual ceremony will be shared soon. In the meantime, you are still welcome to order regalia for picture-taking, along with commemorative items like diploma frames and tassels.
