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.
In the past, Morgan has sponsored a day called Commencement Corner. This is usually held the day before Commencement. Please check back for the exact date and time for this event.
Please plan to be on campus this day for pre-commencement activities such as obtaining your Graduation Packet (includes guest admit tickets, if needed for indoor ceremonies, and Certification Card), exit interviews, rehearsal video viewing, financial aid wrap-up, regalia checks, etc.
Graduate School candidates are asked to contact the Graduate School regarding obtaining their Graduation packet.
Graduation Packet Information
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.
GUEST ADMIT TICKETS (For Indoor Commencement Events)
These tickets are needed during the Fall when we meet indoors and during the Spring only if it rains and the ceremony moves indoors. The number of guest tickets, when needed, will be announced to students once we get closer to the Commencement dates.
All guests must have an OFFICIAL UNIVERSITY GUEST ADMIT TICKET to enter the graduation venue. Each degree candidate who is certified for graduation will be provided with Guest Admit Tickets to distribute to their guests.
When meeting indoors, guest admit tickets are determined by the recommendation from the Morgan Fire Marshal and are calculated based on the legal maximum capacity for the venue according to the Baltimore City and Maryland State fire code regulations.
Guests without Guest Admit Tickets may view the ceremony via the live stream on the University website.
COMMENCEMENT LIVE STREAM
A live stream of each ceremony will be accessible via the University’s Commencement page to accommodate those family members and friends who exceed the number of Guest Admit Tickets available.
