Congratulations, Hawks. 

In spite of the challenges we have faced this semester, you have all made sacrifices and put in the hard work to achieve the important milestone of graduating with your degree from UH-Clear Lake.

We commend you on your commitment and perseverance. As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic prevents us from gathering in the traditional way to celebrate spring 2020 commencement. While we will not be gathering this May, we want to assure you that we will be celebrating your accomplishments and ushering you in as alumni. Check out how you can still celebrate virtually.
