MARCH 19, 2021 — The University of Texas at San Antonio today announced plans for Commencement activities to recognize May 2021 graduates, as well as graduates of the Class of 2020.
In-Person Commencement ceremonies
In-person Commencement ceremonies for May 2021 graduates will be held May 14-16.
In-person ceremonies for graduates who earned their degrees in May 2020 and December 2020 will be held the following weekend, May 21-23. These ceremonies will be college-based and will be held at various locations on the Main Campus.
As always, the health and safety of UTSA students, staff and faculty remain the university’s top priority. While this semester’s ceremonies will look different than in past years, they will include many traditional aspects to honor graduating students combined with additional events to allow for family participation.
For example, graduates participating in the in-person ceremonies will have their name called while they walk the stage, with opportunities for official photographs. Many students have indicated these are the most important elements of Commencement.
Additional ceremony details:
UTSA will continue to host a fully virtual celebration for all graduates, including those who do not wish to participate in in-person ceremonies, as was done for May 2020 and December 2020 graduates, through a partnership with MarchingOrder.com.
UTSA recognizes the important role families and friends have played in students’ success and will provide opportunities for guests to come to campus to take part in the commencement celebration.
All eligible students will be receiving more details on all these events in the days to come.

First Friday Stargazing gives anyone free access to the night sky using university telescopes and teaching equipment. Weather permitting, experienced astronomers will provide a handful of telescopes of varying designs, give training on how each operates, and point to various astronomical objects that may appear in the sky for that given time of the year. If you have a telescope and do not know how to operate it, feel free to bring it and get instructions on its use.4th Floor of Flawn Science Building, Main Campus
