2021 Commencement Activities

Congratulations to the Class of 2021! The entire McCombs community is proud and excited to honor your achievements at this year’s commencement activities.

Multiple graduation celebration opportunities are available for McCombs students. The first opportunity, available for all programs, is a Graduation Recognition Moment (GRM), which is an in-person stage crossing that will take place on campus for each McCombs program between May 20 and May 22. Students will preregister for a time slot to walk across the stage, hear their name announced, and pause for a photo on the stage. There will be additional photo opportunities when students exit the stage. Students may bring a few guests to the in-person GRM, and other guests may access a livestream. The program offices will send RSVP requests and more information directly to graduating students.

The second opportunity, for the master’s programs, is a virtual ceremony. Each McCombs master’s program will premiere a prerecorded ceremony with speakers and slides for all graduates with names announced. Graduates may send photos and quotes for their slide. Each master’s program’s virtual ceremony will premiere on YouTube between May 20 and May 22.

The third opportunity, available for all programs, is the university-wide ceremony in DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday, May 22 at 8 p.m. Students and a limited number of their guests will preregister to attend. The ceremony will also be livestreamed. All eligible graduating students should have received an email from UT about the university-wide ceremony. If you plan to attend this ceremony, you must RSVP by Friday, April 30. Please visit the UT website for more information.

Join us May 20, 21, and 22, and enjoy remarks from our deans, special guests, and the business community. Let’s celebrate together and Hook ’em!
