The University of Houston will confer degrees in a virtual University-Wide Commencement ceremony on Thursday, December 17, which includes Spring 2020, Summer 2020 and Winter 2020 graduates.

We acknowledge the disappointment and dissatisfaction that the postponement of an in-person commencement ceremony has caused our graduates this year. We are committed to inviting back graduates to a future, in-person ceremony when it is safe to do so.

NSM Virtual Graduation Celebration
Friday, December 18, 2020, 12:00 pm (Noon) – 2:00 pm

The day after the University-Wide Commencement ceremony, NSM will host a virtual graduation celebration.

NSM’s Graduation Celebration will incorporate several of NSM’s graduation traditions, including a student speaker, award presentations, and the reading of graduating student names. It will also include photo and video submissions from our graduates.

Details on participation will be emailed to Spring and Summer graduates and Fall semester graduation candidates. Please contact Kathy Major,, if you do not receive information by email.

Since this is a virtual ceremony, regalia (cap and gown) are not required. However if you want to purchase or rent regalia, you can do that online. The last day to order your graduation regalia online is Wednesday, December 9, 2020. Orders placed after this date may incur additional fees.
