Plan II Majors Moment of Recognition scheduled for Friday, May 21, 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.

An in-person Graduation Recognition Moment for all UT Colleges and Schools will consist of a guided path where graduates will enter the event space with their limited number of guests, cross the ceremony stage, take a professional graduation photo, and exit the venue. All Graduation Recognition Moments will be streamed live to allow the moment to be shared with extended family and friends. You will be able to sign up for a time slot either Friday, May 21 or Saturday, May 22. Please look out for further instruction as we get closer to the event, or check out the FAQ page.

All CoLA undergraduate students who are eligible to graduate in Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Summer 2021 are invited to attend the CoLA Moment of Recognition. There will not be individual department in-person celebrations.

To participate in the Moment of Recognition, Spring Graduates please submit the graduation application via the CoLA website here. Fall 2020 or Summer 2021 graduates can participate by signing up for the “walk list” by meeting with a Dean’s office advisor (information and link to online chat here).

Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium

All students who complete their academic degrees within the 2020-21 academic year are invited to participate in the university-wide Commencement ceremony. Capacity within the stadium will be limited. Tickets will be free and will be required for graduates and guests. Each graduate will receive at least 2 tickets for guests. The RSVP process for tickets will be shared with graduates in mid-April.

Commencement will include the traditional Tower lighting and fireworks display. It will be broadcast and streamed live so additional family and friends will be able to watch if they are not able to attend in person.


More commonly referred to as “cap and gown," academic regalia are traditionally worn during Commencement. Regalia and announcements may be purchased through the University Co-op. Deadline for bachelors regalia purchases is April 30. The “stole” color for the College of Liberal Arts is white. If purchasing regalia poses an economic hardship for you, please reach out to the Plan II office as we have some regalia donated from previous classes available for loan.
