Faculty Information

Virtual Commencement

After exhausting every possible scenario, Texas State has made the difficult decision that it will not be possible to hold in-person commencement ceremonies in August 2020 for spring and summer graduates while adhering to the required social distancing measures. Instead, Texas State will share virtual commencement ceremonies on August 6, 7, and 8, 2020.


Congratulating your Graduates

According to recent surveys of Texas State graduates, faculty attendance is one of the most important aspects of the commencement ceremony. This is an indication of the hard work and dedication that faculty continue to provide to our students.

Faculty will be contacted by email soon with details about participation in the virtual ceremonies.

Faculty are encouraged to wear regalia from their awarding institutions. Regalia is available for rent online from Balfour.
