Commencement Ceremony

2020 and 2021 Commencement Ceremonies

We are pleased to inform you that we are planning a virtual commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 15, at 10 a.m. for all 2020 and spring 2021 graduates. The virtual commencement ceremony will be streamed live on the UHV Facebook page, as well as our graduation website

As many of you know, we made the difficult decision last year to postpone our spring and then our fall in-person commencement ceremonies because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We know that commencement is an incredible accomplishment and the highlight of each semester, but we had to make decisions based on keeping everyone safe. We also do not expect conditions to allow an in-person ceremony on May 15, which is why we moved to a virtual ceremony.

UHV expects to be able to hold in-person commencement ceremonies sometime in the late summer or early fall, depending on conditions. Any 2020 or spring 2021 graduate who participates in the May 15 virtual commencement ceremony also may choose to participate in the in-person commencement ceremonies.

We look forward to having these in-person commencement ceremonies and will notify everyone as soon as we have a date(s). Additionally, we will make graduates aware of any virtual commencement ceremony participation instructions as that information becomes available. 


If you have additional questions, please contact or 361-570-4848. You can also visit our frequently asked questions webpage. All correspondence about commencement will be sent to your UHV email account.
