UMGC Europe remains focused on the health and safety of its students, employees, alumni, and guests. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Commencement 2021 will be held drive-in theater style on Saturday, 1 May in Wiesbaden, Germany. Please see below for additional ceremony information. Questions should be directed to

Honor your accomplishment and recognize this educational milestone.

Commencement is a special occasion, particularly when shared with family, friends, and fellow graduates. The graduation ceremony honors your accomplishments and recognizes this educational milestone. We cordially invite Summer 2020, Fall 2020, Winter 2021, and Spring 2021 graduates and their guests to Commencement 2021 and hope you will be able to join your classmates and faculty in this celebration.

This year’s UMGC Europe Commencement ceremony will be held “drive-in theater style” on Saturday, 1 May at 1400 CEST at Lucius D. Clay Kaserne in Wiesbaden, Germany.  Just as we did in November 2020, holding commencement in this format will mean that graduates/guests stay safely in their vehicles while watching activities on the stage and on big screen(s). Graduates will be called up to the stage when it is their turn to receive a diploma. Further details will be sent to graduates as the date draws closer. Hope to see you there!
