Fall 2015 College Convocation & Spring 2016 University Commencement

University Commencement

A commencement tradition is revived at the University of Houston. It is pomp. It is impressive. It is spectacular. It is joy and pride for your family, and a model for future generations to follow. The commencement is comprised of two coordinated ceremonies: University Commencement, held at TDECU Stadium, and College Convocation, held at locations around campus. 

University Commencement is the formal university-wide celebration at which President Renu Khator officially confers degrees upon graduating students. The ceremony features a processional of graduates and faculty, remarks from the President, and a vibrant keynote speaker. University Commencement is an event not to be missed for students, families, and friends.
