UMGC Asia Commencement

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're like a lot of soon-to-be college graduates, you've prevailed over at least a few challenges as you made your way through post-secondary education. We know you've 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've accomplished. It is a time to thank family, friends, and others who have helped you along the way. It is your chance to catch up with classmates and shake hands with faculty and staff.

Don't pass up this chance to celebrate your educational milestone. We cordially invite all Summer 2019, Fall 2019, and Spring 2020 graduates and their guests to one of our four commencement ceremonies. We look forward to seeing you in Japan, Okinawa, Korea, or Guam!
