The U.S. Merchant Marine Academy is announcing an important change to its 2013-2014 Academic Calendar. Graduation for the Class of 2014 will now take place on Saturday, June 21, 2014 instead of Monday, June 23. As it has for many years, the awards convocation will still be held on the Friday morning prior to graduation. The schedule revision would add the Change-of-Command ceremony on Friday afternoon, with the June Ball on Friday evening. We anticipate that the Baccalaureate Service, previously held on Sunday morning, will be scheduled for Thursday evening.
