Commencement Announcements

  • Be safe Bobcats! We know many graduates take a celebratory jump in the San Marcos River. Unfortunately, the river water level is currently at a historic low due to drought which significantly increases the risk of serious injury from jumping in.  The university discourages jumping into the river at this time. If you do jump, use extreme caution. Do not dive headfirst or somersault in, and always look before you leap to determine the water depth.
  • The final draft of the Commencement Program is now available. Graduates will receive a printed copy of the program at commencement and a limited number will be available in the concourse for guests.
  • Guest tickets are required for commencement. Eligible candidates should have received an email with ticketing instructions around July 7. Visit the Guest Information page for more information.
  • Commencement will be streamed live and recordings will be available shortly after commencement.
