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.
