Honors Convocation

Dental graduates gather in cap and gown for the 2023 Honors Convocation.

The Honors Convocation is the recognition of degree completion.

During the ceremony, degree candidates walk across the stage and receive their doctoral hoods (DDS) or pins (BSDH). The graduating DDS class selects two members of the faculty to hood the graduates. Students may also pre-select individual doctoral hooders/pinners (one or two). Specific requirements for doctoral hooders/pinners will be described to the graduates. Photographs of the graduates are taken with the Dean.  

Tickets are required to attend Honors Convocation.

Accessible seating is limited at the venue. Guests need to contact Helen Dagilis at hdagilis@umaryland.edu or 410-706-0258 as soon as possible to inquire about accessible seating.
