At UTSA, Commencement is more than a ceremony.  It’s a celebration, a defining moment, of the diligence, dedication and collaborations from this educational community which culminate in earning that significant degree.

Spring 2021 commencement ceremonies will be college-based and held at various locations on the Main Campus. While the ceremonies will look different than in past years, they retain many of the traditional celebratory aspects to rightfully honor our graduating students. Ceremonies will also be held for graduates who earned their degrees in 2020. UTSA will continue to host a virtual celebration for all graduates, including those who do not wish to participate in in-person ceremonies.

All ceremonies will be livestreamed for real-time viewing by family and friends. To promote the safety of our graduates and volunteer organizers, only graduates will participate in the ceremonies; guests will not be permitted. For more information, see Info for Grads.
