Rehearsal & Certification Packets


All degree candidates are encouraged to view our Commencement Information and Rehearsal videos before the Commencement exercises.   These videos will give important information on how to dress for Commencement, how to wear your regalia, where to line up, how to be robed during the exercise, and much more.

– Picking up your Cards and Guest Tickets –

Morgan will be moving soon to electronic disbursement of Commencement tickets and cards. Until that system is implemented, students must obtain their packets from their respective Graduation Coordinators on campus. These are the coordinators affiliated with your school or college where you are earning your diploma. For example, students earning a degree from the School of Business should see the coordinator for School of Business.

CERTIFICATION PACKET PICK UP DAY for candidates receiving Masters and Doctoral Degrees is Wednesday, May 18, 2022 between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm in the Earl G. Graves School of Business & Management – 104 Auditorium, 4200 Hillen Road, Baltimore, MD 21218

CERTIFICATION PACKET PICK UP DAY for all candidates receiving Bachelor Degrees is Friday, May 20, 2022 between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm in the Talmadge Hill Field House. Look for the table bearing the name of your School/Graduation Coordinator.

The packets will be given out the day before Commencement. Pick up time and location information is as follows:

  • GUEST ADMIT TICKETS (Only needed if we meet indoors)

Certification Card:
Each degree candidate will be issued one (1) certification card.  Only that degree candidate can use the certification card issued to participate in the University’s Commencement Exercises.  The certification card will bear the degree candidate’s name and discipline (and Latin honors, if earned) and a special code that prevents duplication of the card. Once degree candidates receive the certification card, they should secure the card in a safe place.  Degree candidates must bring the certification card on Graduation Day. Degree candidates WILL NOT be admitted to participate in the University’s Commencement Exercises without their certification card. 

Verification Card:
Degree candidates will be issued one Verification Card.  Degree candidates should (1) fill out the verification card prior to the Commencement Exercises and (2) bring the verification card on the day of graduation. The verification card will be collected by ushers as the graduates conclude the recessional and depart from the venue.

Guest Tickets – These tickets are only needed during the Fall when we meet indoors and during the Spring if it rains. The number of guest tickets, when needed, will be announced to students once we get closer to the Commencement dates.
