Commencement Ceremony Dates

Texas A&M University - College Station

The Office of the Registrar is responsible for ensuring the number of graduates at each commencement ceremony results in ceremonies of reasonably equal duration. Consequently, the determination of which colleges will graduate at which ceremony is typically not established until the seventh or eighth week of classes. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for this deadline.
