COVID-19 (coronavirus) Update: Commencement

Wednesday, March 18, 2020 :: University Marketing & Communication

As you may have heard, The University of Texas System has directed all System schools to postpone Spring Commencement ceremonies.

Please note that this postponement will not affect a student’s ability to graduate this semester. Students may still graduate this semester and receive their diploma upon certification of graduation requirements.

We are obviously disappointed with the postponement because our commencement ceremonies are beloved for all those involved. We don’t want any graduate to miss out on this experience and are currently working to reschedule our Spring Commencement for a later date.  We will provide details as soon as possible.

The System also directed each university to provide academic offerings online; UTRGV is already preparing for this transition and will begin Monday, March 23.

Please regularly check your email for the latest updates and visit the aforementioned webpage, which also includes Frequently Asked Questions, for the latest information.

Our main concern continues to be the health, safety, and security of our UTRGV community. We appreciate your patience and cooperation while we work through this unprecedented situation.
