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:
