Due to the ongoing uncertainty COVID-19 has presented and the current Maryland Stay-at-Home directive, the University is postponing Commencement 2020 originally scheduled for May 17. The University is looking forward to celebrating this great accomplishment and is presently looking to confirm a date at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, likely to happen toward the end of summer 2020.

For those completing your degree this spring, upon successful completion of your courses and degree requirements you will still finish up on schedule and officially be a May, 2020 graduate as planned.


The countdown is on! You can share in the Commencement excitement by using #NDMUGrad2020.
