Nearly 3,000 UTSA graduates to cross the stage in fall Commencement ceremonies

CLASS OF 2022

DECEMBER 6, 2022 — On her first day of class, Aisha Bah couldn’t even get past the computer’s login screen. She’d never had a computer before. On December 13, the Liberian native—who recently completed an internship with IBM in New York—will cross the stage to receive her bachelor’s degree in computer science.

Bah is one of 2,912 Roadrunners who will receive their degrees today. She joins the 2,267 graduates who will earn their bachelor’s degree. Another 587 will receive their master’s degrees. Rounding out this year’s graduating class are 58 students who have earned their Ph.D.

James Kirkendoll is among those who has earned a graduate degree. The Bexar County deputy will receive his M.S. in criminology and criminal justice. His family—his wife, two kids and a baby on the way—will be cheering him on as he crosses the stage.

UTSA will hold two Commencement ceremonies on Tuesday, December 13, at the Alamodome. Graduates of the College of Liberal and Fine Arts, the College of Sciences—including Bah—and graduates like Kirkendoll from the College for Health, Community and Policy will cross the stage during the first ceremony at 10 a.m. Graduates of the Carlos Alvarez College of Business, University College, the College of Education and Human Development and the Margie and Bill Klesse College of Engineering and Integrated Design will receive their degrees during the second ceremony at 3 p.m.

The following is a breakdown of fall 2022 graduates by each college.

  • Alvarez College of Business: 837 (619 bachelor’s; 215 master’s; 3 doctoral)
