UCM awards degrees and certificates three times per year: May, August, and December. Students completing a class during a 1st-half semester session or any other early start/end term session, must wait to have their degree and/or certificate awarded at the end of the full semester.
Commencement ceremonies are held for degree candidates twice a year: May and December.
Those students completing their degrees in August are invited to participate in the
May ceremonies. Students who are only completing certificates are not recognized
at commencement ceremonies.
