UTSA's first spring Commencement ceremony begins at 10 a.m., May 12 and honors graduates from the College of Education and Human Development, College of Sciences and University College.
Students who are earning a degree from the College of Liberal and Fine Arts and College of Engineering will walk the stage on May 12 at 4 p.m.
The third ceremony, scheduled at 2 p.m. on May 13, will recognize graduates from College of Architecture, Construction and Planning, College of Business and College of Public Policy.
Students who are graduating this spring also should plan to attend Grad Fest, a fun event to help Roadrunners prepare for graduation and Commencement. Students can order their cap and gown and other Commencement-related items, and learn important information about Commencement and life after UTSA.
