Grad Fest is a one-stop way to get all the information you need about Commencement. We encourage all soon-to-be graduates to stop by to purchase commencement-related products and have questions answered. For the specific dates of Grad Fest please review the Important Dates chart on www.ubalt.edu/commencement.
While Grad Fest features different elements every semester, you can usually expect:
- Regalia orders: caps, gowns, hoods and tassels may be purchased
- Information about the UBalt Alumni Association, Graduate Admissions and helpful resources for life after UBalt.
