Fall Commencement Ceremony

Our commencement ceremonies look quite different this fall as we work to balance protecting the health and safety of graduates, guests and UNT faculty and staff with the need to provide events to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates.

UNT hosted an in-person commencement ceremony at 1 p.m. Nov. 22, 2020, at Apogee Stadium and will host virtual College Recognition Ceremonies Dec. 11 and 12.

To participate in any fall commencement event, a student must either:

  • be a bachelor’s degree candidate for graduation at the time of the ceremony and must have applied for graduation.


  • be a doctoral and master's candidates who has applied for graduation by the posted deadline and completed their degree requirements.
