Confirm Your Application

Remember that registering and attending the commencement ceremonies does not constitute an application for your diploma.

It also does not indicate that you have completed your graduation requirements.

If you have not done so already, you must:

  • Apply via MyUMUC
  • Submit your $50 diploma fee by February 15, 2014 and confirm you have completed your graduation requirements.
