4. Spring Graduation
Students who anticipate graduating in Spring 2015 MUST apply for graduation by Friday, February 6, 2015. Students apply for graduation online through Testudo at: http://testudo.umd.edu/. More information about the Spring 2015 commencement ceremonies will be posted on the commencement website (http://www.commencement.umd.edu/), the CCJS website and emailed to students in the coming weeks.
Summer Graduates: If you are planning to finish your course work in the summer, please DO NOT apply for spring graduation. Summer graduates can apply for graduation while registering for summer courses. Summer registration begins February 17, 2015. If you are planning to graduate in the summer, please be advised there is no formal university or departmental graduation ceremony in the summer. Students planning to graduate in the summer can request to "walk" in the spring CCJS departmental graduation ceremony. During the departmental ceremony, graduates will have their name called and walk across the stage in regalia. Summer graduates' names will NOT appear in either the university or departmental program booklets. If you would like to walk in the Spring 2015 ceremony as a summer graduate, please contact Dr. Stickle (firstname.lastname@example.org) AFTER you have registered for your remaining summer courses and no later than Friday, April 17, 2015. In the e-mail, please provide your full name, UID, email address and please list the subject as “Spring 2015 Walk List.”
