APRIL 14, 2020 — UTSA will hold virtual commencement ceremonies for spring 2020 graduates on May 23 and 24 as one part of the celebration for the Class of 2020.
President Taylor Eighmy announced in March that UTSA’s in-person May commencement ceremonies would be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the interim, the virtual ceremonies give graduates a memorable occasion to mark all the hard work that went into earning their degrees.
The planned virtual ceremonies will provide a commemorative opportunity for the graduates and their families that will include an opportunity to include a graduate photo and personal message of thanks to families and faculty. Individual slides will be immediately available to share on social media.
Each graduate will have an opportunity to have their name and accomplishments professionally read. The virtual ceremonies will also include custom video messages from university leadership specifically for the Class of 2020.

UTSA is actively planning ways to celebrate the Class of 2020’s accomplishments in-person once the university is able to do so safely and public gatherings are allowed.
The entire Roadrunner community is invited to view the virtual commencement ceremonies, which can be viewed at the designated broadcast times or watched later.

Victory celebrations in San Antonio always include honking car horns, and we are carrying that tradition over to UTSA. Graduates are encouraged to bring someone along to drive, so they can wave and take photos from their vehicle. To ensure safety everyone is encouraged remain in their vehicles and limit their celebration to one car per graduate. All cars must begin at the parade starting point and stay in line as the drive goes through campus. Share your videos on social media using #UTSAGrad20 for a chance to be featured on our channels.UTSA Main Campus
