Graduation and Pinning Ceremony

University-wide Commencement

Each May graduation events at the University of Houston consist of two coordinated ceremonies: University-wide Commencement which is held at TDECU Stadium and College Convocations which are held at other locations.

University-wide Commencement will be held Friday, May 12, 2017 at 10 a.m. at TDECU Stadium, University of Houston Main Campus. It is the formal university-wide celebration at which President Renu Khator officially confers degrees upon graduating students from all the colleges on campus. The ceremony features a processional of graduates and faculty, remarks from the President, and a vibrant keynote speaker.

Students can RSVP for the university-wide commencement here.

Per University Commencement Participation Policies, graduates from the full academic year (Fall 2016, Spring 2017, and Summer 2017 graduates) are invited to participate in the annual University Commencement in May 2017. Summer 2017 candidates must apply for summer graduation by an early deadline of April 14th in order to be considered for participation in the May University Commencement (the Summer graduation application opens Friday, March 31, 2017).
