Graduation

Congratulations, you made it!

There are two steps in the Graduation process: Certification & Commencement

Certification

Certification is how UT actually awards your degree. If you don't go through this process, you're not considered a graduate of McCombs & UT Austin. Your audit will need to be at 100% before we can certify you, but as long as you plan on being at 100% by the end of the current semester, you can apply for certification.

Deadline: October 25, 2022 for Fall of 2022
Application Link: Graduation Manager

Commencement

Commencement is the graduation ceremony. Sometimes referred to as "walking the stage," this is the celebration of your accomplishments with caps & gowns and family & friends. You can walk even if you're not being certified, but will need to make sure to RSVP. Click here for more information about Commencement during the spring or fall semesters.

Ceremony Date: Fall 2022 Commencement will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 3:30pm in the Bass Concert Hall

Deadline: In order for your name to be listed on the printed commencement ceremony, you must RSVP for the ceremony by November 4th. 

 

 

You can apply to be both certified and/or participate in commencement on UT Direct

If you're wanting to be certified, make sure to complete Step 1. If you're wanting to participate in commencement, make sure to complete Step 2. Make sure to do both if you'd like to both officially receive your degree and walk the stage, otherwise just complete the step you're wanting to do this semester.

Tuition Rebate & B-On-Time Loan Forgiveness

If you meet the requirements, you may also be eligible for a tuition rebate. We also have information on B-On-Time Loan Forgiveness. Please see the appropriate tab below for more information.

Tuition Rebate

Tuition Rebate Program

A graduating senior who is a Texas resident may be eligible for a $1,000 tuition rebate upon graduation if they meet eligibility requirements set by the State of Texas.

The tuition rebate is for undergraduates only. Given the unique nature of the IMPA program and the strict requirements of the tuition rebate program, it is very unlikely that IMPA students will qualify for a tuition rebate.

Application Directions

To apply for the Tuition Rebate, print and scan the completed application into your computer as a PDF and email it to TuitionRebate@mccombs.utexas.edu. Save your email because it will serve as your receipt. Do not fax or drop off the paper application to us. We will only accept scanned applications attached to your email. 

Required Form: Tuition Rebate Application

Deadline: Tuition Rebate Application forms are due by 5 p.m. the day before the official date of graduation. For fall 2022 graduates, the deadline is Friday, December 16th, 2022 at 5 p.m.

B-On-Time

B-On-Time Loan Forgiveness Program

Description: The Texas B-On-Time Loan program provides low or no-interest loans to eligible Texas students. The loans can be forgiven upon graduation if certain conditions are met.


Required Form: B-on-Time Loan Forgiveness Eligibility Confirmation Form

Priority Deadline: before Graduation. Once you graduate, we will begin processing your form, which may take several weeks. Forms should be scanned and saved as a PDF; then attached to an email to TuitionRebate@mccombs.utexas.edu
