Alternatively, students may pick up their diplomas at the Registrar’s Office for one week following graduation. After that time, they will be mailed to students.


All around the area, but it will be a busy time, so leave plenty of time to find parking.

Contact the 1st Mariner Arena (410) 347-2000 about handicap parking and special seating in the arena.


None are necessary. The ceremony is open to all. UMB does provide some generic announcements which state, that the UMB Campus is having a graduation ceremony at the 1st Mariner Arena on Friday, May 15, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. You will receive them in March. Some students in the past have purchased more personal yet inexpensive announcements off campus or from the bookstore.
