Graduation Information


We look forward to hosting graduation events and activities in May of 2019 to commemorate this important event in the lives of our students. Check this page in January of 2019 for updates regarding the law school’s hooding ceremony, UMB Commencement, and other events.


If you did not pick up your diploma after the University Commencement ceremony on May 18th, you may pick it up from the University Registrar, 601 W. Lombard Street, 2nd floor, until June 1, 2018.  The office is open from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.  You will need to show your student ID in order to obtain your diploma.

Beginning on June 4, 2018, remaining diplomas will be mailed to graduates at the address listed on the Graduation Application.  If you wish to change the mailing address, contact the University Registrar at 410.706.7480.

Please be aware that if you received Latin honors, the current version of your diploma will not show honors.  The diplomas for students receiving summa cum laude, magna cum laude, and cum laude honors will be reprinted to reflect honors and will be mailed to graduates between July 15 and August 15.

Health Insurance After Graduation

University health coverage will expire on July 31. In June, you will receive a letter from Carefirst discussing the end of your coverage and the next steps that you should take.

The University does not have a conversion health care policy. You will need to contact the health insurance exchange in your state to enroll within 30 days of losing your coverage. You can browse plans online now to find a policy that will meet your needs.

If seeking coverage in Maryland, go to the Maryland Health Connection website.
