Commencement is the ceremony held by the University for students who are expected to have successfully completed all of their graduation requirements by the end of the semester. The Commencement ceremony celebrates the academic achievements of these students. Candidates do not receive their diplomas during the Commencement ceremony. There are only two Commencement ceremonies a year, one at the end of the fall semester, and one at the end of the spring semester. Summer 2020 graduates are invited to participate in the Spring/Summer 2020 Commencement ceremony.
UT Tyler is being proactive to do our part to slow the spread of COVID–19 and protect our community. As a precautionary measure, the May 2 Commencement ceremony has been postponed. The rescheduled ceremony will be held in the R. Don Cowan Fine and Performing Arts Center.
