Commencement: A Ceremony of Success

Each semester our graduates gather with their family and friends to celebrate their success in earning their UHCL degree. Commencement is a proud time for everyone to honor your achievement. Get the process started by submitting an Application for Graduation.

The Commencement ceremony at NRG Arena is a major event that requires careful organization so that everything will happen on time and graduates will get to their private celebrations after the event as expected.

We've assembled here the various steps that you need to take if you are planning to attend Commencement. Follow them closely. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions about anything.
