MPA Spring Commencement

Congratulations, MPAs! You did it! You've worked incredibly hard, and now it's time to celebrate!


The MPA Commencement ceremony is usually held in the early afternoon on the same day that the evening, University-wide ceremony is held. The MPA Program Office hosts a reception for graduating students and their guests prior to the commencement ceremony. The University does not host December or summer commencement ceremonies.


MPA graduates will be emailed graduation information in the spring semester and updates will be posted to the MPA Program Office Canvas page. Check this page in January for more details.

  • When will I receive my diploma?

    Diplomas are mailed about six weeks after a student’s graduation, so please make sure to keep your postal information current with the University. Update your contact information in the address change section of UTDirect. MPA students graduating with both BBA and MPA degrees will receive those diplomas in the mail separately.
