Welcome, we know you’re excited to help celebrate our students’ achievements.
The University of Mary Washington’s longstanding tradition is to hold Commencement on Ball Circle, the epicenter of campus life. At this time, masks are optional in all outdoor spaces on UMW’s campuses. During commencement exercises, the choice to wear a mask is up to each individual based on their own assessment of the environment and comfort. All are welcome to join us in this momentous occasion. The ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, May 7, 2022 on Ball Circle located on our Fredericksburg campus. The ceremony is for those who earn their bachelor’s or master’s degree in August 2021, December 2021 and May 2022. The processional begins at 9:00 a.m. and the ceremony will conclude at noon.
Everyone is welcome and guest tickets are not required. The field opens at 7:00 a.m. to access guest seating.
