Dear Faculty and Staff,
We hope you will join us in celebrating the Class of 2022 by participating in UMBC's Winter Commencement ceremonies at the Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena.
- Graduate Commencement will be held at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, December 21, 2022
- Undergraduate Commencement will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, December 22, 2022
There are a number of ways you can come together with the UMBC community to congratulate our graduates. Please take a moment to RSVP today so we can make appropriate arrangements.
March in the Commencement procession. Academic regalia is required to march. You may use your own regalia or order it through the UMBC Bookstore through November 22, 2022. Specific instructions are included on the RSVP form. Please note: UMBC will subsidize the rental of academic regalia for faculty and staff; however, to ensure timely delivery, you will be responsible for an expedited shipping fee if you place your order after November 22, 2022.
Serve as event staff. We still need help! It takes more than 50 staff from across campus to make this event possible and to support graduates and their families on their special day. We will provide detailed instructions and also host a training session on Tuesday, December 20, 2022, at 3 p.m. on the arena floor.
In addition, if you or your immediate family member is graduating this winter, we can reserve up to six seats for you and your guests. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seats by December 9, 2022. Please note: this amenity is only for current UMBC faculty and staff members and is not for the general student body.

We look forward to seeing you at the Commencement ceremonies!
