Commencement Program

A draft of the Spring 2020 Commencement program will be available in mid-April.


If you indicated 'Yes' on the graduation application to 'Permitting Your Name to be Printed in the Commencement Program':
Your name will show in the program and on your diploma as it appears in the University Student Information System (i.e, Degree Audit).

Name changes must be submitted to the Registrar's Office with the required documentation by the deadlines listed.
NOTE: the Registrar's Office will not change your name to anything other than your legal name.

Honors Status

A full explanation of the 'Graduation with Honors' policy can be found in the online Undergraduate Catalog and is summarized below:
To receive the honors designation you must have earned at least 54 Texas State credit hours upon completion of your final semester and earned the required Texas State GPA (3.40-3.59 = Cum Laude; 3.60-3.79 = Magna Cum Laude; 3.80-4.00 = Summa Cum Laude).

Honors designation in the Commencement Program is based on the cumulative Texas State GPA at the time of application submission. This may differ from what ultimately appears on the diploma since final grade posting occurs in the week following Commencement.
