The University of Maryland University College Korea Commencement ceremony will take place on April 21 beginning at 2 p.m. at Seoul American High School Auditorium, USAG Yongsan, Seoul, Korea. Guest seating will begin at 1:30 p.m.

The ceremony will include a keynote address by Command Sgt. Maj. Steven L. Payton, of United Nations Command, Combined Forces Command, United States Forces Korea.

James B. Cronin, UMUC vice president and director, Asia, will preside over the ceremony. Music will be provided by the Eighth Army Band.

In addition to the ceremony, a post-commencement reception will be held at Dragon Hill Lodge, which is located across the street from Seoul American High School, beginning about 3:15 p.m.
