University Commencement Ceremony
College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics
Spring 2020 - May 8, 2020 Event Postponed
The University of Houston has postponed Spring 2020 commencement ceremonies due to the global COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and restrictions on event sizes. The ceremonies will be rescheduled for late summer or early fall when local, state and federal restrictions allow and when it is safe for our University community to come together again.
The University of Houston recognizes that commencement is a joyous time and an incredible accomplishment to be celebrated by our graduates and their families. UH will immediately begin planning a postponed commencement for spring 2020 graduates as soon as health conditions allow.
We will continue to keep our graduates and UH community informed as these plans are developed.
