Congratulations 2014 Graduates!

Saturday, May 10, 2014 - Augusta Civic Center

All of the UMA community congratulates our graduates as they achieve this milestone.  To ensure a memorable event for our graduates, their family and friends, and to answer some typical questions, graduates and their guests are strongly encouraged to read through this information.

What Graduates Need to Know

 

Applying for Graduation

Students who wish to apply for candidacy for graduation must file a graduation card, or use the online Candidacy for Graduation Form, by December 1 for December completions and April 1 for May and August graduation. Students should meet with their faculty advisors first to avoid any unfortunate surprises in the spring; however, students are ultimately responsible for being aware of program requirements which are published in the UMA catalog. Information is also available through the Advising Center, College Offices, Academic Advisor, or University Center.

Commencement Protocol

The University of Maine at Augusta’s Commencement is an important, exciting, and proud day for the graduates, their families and friends, and for UMA’s faculty, administration, and staff.  It is the University’s desire that the tone of the commencement ceremony be one of honor, respect, and dignity.  Thus, behavior of the graduates and their guests should be consistent with the significance of the occasion.  To that end, we ask the following:

  • No one is permitted to stand in the aisles or to block the view of another audience member.
