All students who anticipate graduating at the end of the semester must register online through MyUB or in person at the Office of the University Registrar. If you register after February 6, 2015, there is a late fee. Once your registration is successfully completed, you will receive a notification by mail or through your UB email account. Please review the information immediately and notify the Office of the University Registrar at 410.837.4825 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if any information is incorrect. The absolute deadline to register to graduate and still be able to participate in the spring 2015 ceremony is Wednesday, April 1; if you do not register by this date you will not be able to participate in the ceremony.
Come by this one-stop shop for all your graduation needs:
Graduates are responsible for purchasing their own commencement garb, which will be available during the graduation fair and online. Individual pieces are not able to be ordered online, only full regalia packages. The deadline to purchase your garb package online is 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22, 2015.
A limited number of bachelor’s and master’s garb sets will be available for purchase the week before the ceremony at the Barnes & Noble at the University of Baltimore. These purchases will incur an additional $20 late fee. Because doctoral robes must be pre-ordered, they will not be available the week before the ceremony. You may also purchase individual pieces such as caps, hoods and tassels at this time.
All students are guaranteed the same number of tickets for the commencement ceremony, which is determined by the number of graduates and the number of seats available in the venue. All guests entering the venue will need to have a ticket, including babies and young children. Graduates will receive a separate ticket.
While we encourage those who do not need all of their tickets to share extras with fellow graduates, under no circumstances should a student sell or purchase tickets.
Spring 2015 graduates will each receive five tickets to their commencement ceremony at the Patricia and Arthur Model Performing Arts Center at The Lyric. Extras may be available. If so, all graduates will be notified.
There are three ways to obtain tickets:
You must have an active Bee Card and have registered to graduate at least 24 hours prior to picking up your tickets. Unfortunately, we are not able to allow anyone else to pick up tickets on your behalf.
Students who register for graduation after the final deadline (April 1) are not eligible to participate in commencement and cannot receive tickets.
Be sure to look your best when you walk across the stage; professional photographers and videographers will be at the commencement ceremony to snap photos as you receive your diploma and to take cap-and-gown portraits. These photos are taken free of charge and with no obligation to order.
UB wants to make sure everyone can see you shine. Family and friends who are unable to attend the ceremony can watch you walk across the stage live online, and the University is happy to make disability seating accommodations. For more information, see Commencement Day Services.
