UTSA Spring 2018 Commencement dates set

UTSA Spring 2018 Commencement dates set

(Jan. 31, 2018) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) has announced the dates for its Spring 2018 Commencement ceremonies. Nearly 4,000 UTSA students will receive their degrees in one of three ceremonies scheduled on Saturday, May 12 and Sunday, May 13 at the Alamodome.

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. Grad Fest also features prize giveaways and a selfie station to capture lasting memories. UTSA can attend one of two Grad Fest events:

Monday, March 5, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
H-E-B Student Union Ballrooms (HSU 1.104/1.106)
UTSA Main Campus

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

UTSA class rings are also available to 2018 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. Check out ring styles, prices and ordering information on the UTSA Alumni Association website.

UTSA is recognized as one of the top five young universities in the nation by Times Higher Education.
