UTSA announces dates for spring Commencement ceremonies

(Feb. 6, 2017) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) has announced the dates for its Spring 2017 Commencement ceremonies. More than 4,000 UTSA students will receive their degrees in one of three ceremonies scheduled on Saturday, May 13 and Sunday, May 14 at the Alamodome.

UTSA's first spring Commencement ceremony begins at 10 a.m., May 13 and honors graduates from the College of Liberal and Fine Arts, the College of Public Policy and University College.

Students who are earning a degree from the College of Architecture, Construction and Planning, College of Business and College of Engineering will walk the stage on May 13 at 4 p.m.

The third ceremony, scheduled at 2 p.m. on May 14, will recognize graduates from the College of Education and Human Development and the College of Sciences.

Students who are graduating this spring also should plan to attend Grad Fest, a fun event offered to help Roadrunners prepare for graduation and Commencement. Aside from getting important information about commencement and life after UTSA, Grad Fest features prize giveaways and a fun selfie station to take pictures. UTSA students may attend one of two Grad Fest events:

Monday, March 6, 2-6 p.m.
Buena Vista Street Building Meeting Assembly Room (BVB 1.338)
UTSA Downtown Campus

Tuesday, March 7, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
H-E-B University Center Ballroom (HUC 1.104)
UTSA Main Campus

UTSA class rings are also available to 2017 graduates. One of UTSA's most unique traditions, the rings sleep in the Alamo the night before the Ring Ceremony, when students receive this lasting symbol in front of family, friends and university dignitaries. UTSA Ring ordering and pricing information can be found here.

UTSA is ranked among the top 400 universities in the world and among the top 100 in the nation, according to Times Higher Education.
