Commencement Overview Masthead

The University of Texas at Austin celebrates the academic attainment of our graduates with convocation activities in a fun-filled and memorable weekend. Students receiving degrees at the completion of the fall semester are eligible to participate in college and school ceremonies described below.


College and School Convocations

Convocation ceremonies, hosted by colleges and schools, celebrate the achievements of their graduates with individualized honors and traditions. The convocations provide photo opportunities for candidates’ families to capture moments such as the hooding of doctor's and master's degree students or a dean shaking students’ hands as their names are called and they walk across the stage.

Candidates are advised to contact their representative to verify the ceremonies for which they are eligible. The attached schedule notes times and locations and other pertinent information for college and school convocations.

Great Texas Ex-it!

The Texas Exes invite members of the Class of 2004 and their families to a Commencement weekend open house for a free glass of champagne and refreshments.

The Great Texas EX-IT is Saturday, December 4, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and on Sunday, December 5, from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center, 2110 San Jacinto Boulevard. Graduating students may sign over their $10 UT property fee, paid when they first enrolled, to receive a free one-year membership in the Texas Exes and a Texas Ex window decal.
