Important Message

The graduating class this December is the largest class in our history with close to 3,200 candidates! As candidates and guests prepare to attend this special event, please be aware of the expected crowds.

Early arrival is suggested for parking convenience and seating accessibility in University Events Center/Strahan Arena. Guests and candidates are encouraged to use the shuttle bus service as it is often the fastest route to and from the ceremony. Please review the parking information and maps available on the commencement website to plan for your visit to campus.

Commencement is a memorable experience in a student's life and we want that experience at Texas State to be safe and enjoyable. In order to accommodate expected crowds, we recommend that each candidate invite no more than seven guests. This will allow all guests an opportunity to be seated in University Events Center/Strahan Arena and see their candidate walk across the stage. Should the arena become full, guests will be directed to an overflow room for viewing a live broadcast of the ceremony. We appreciate your cooperation.

For your convenience, each ceremony will be streamed live on the commencement website.

Please visit the Parking and Seating Information page of the website for further information.
