The Difference Between Participating in Commencement and Graduating

It is important that candidates and families understand the difference between "participating in commencement [walking across the stage]" and "graduating [receiving a diploma]".

Please visit the Candidate Instructions page for details.


Your Name at Commencement

While applying for graduation, you may have noticed that your name needs to be updated in the University database. For example, adding your full middle name instead of just a middle initial.

In order to change your name with the University, you must submit a Personal Information Update Request with the Registrar's Office. http://www.registrar.txstate.edu/our-services/personal-info-update.html

This name change will affect your diploma, the commencement program, your name Reader Card, and all other university documents.
