Cheers! To the Class of 2020


While we await the postponed commencement ceremonies, we invited graduates, families, friends, alumni and the entire UTA Community to celebrate with Interim President Teik Lim. Join us at the “Cheers! To the class of 2020” Event on December 17 at 7:30 pm on and the UTA Facebook page.

University Webcast
Thursday, December 17

Pre-show begins 7:05 p.m. CDT, Celebration at 7:30 p.m.

Commencement is a culmination of the hard work and dedication students put into earning their degree. It is not only a way to recognize their efforts, but to celebrate graduates as they begin to apply the lessons they’ve learned in the classroom to the world beyond academia. And while the pomp and circumstance may look a little different right now, UTA is as proud as ever to honor this fall’s graduating class both now and formally in the future with postponed ceremonies.


Show us your “Forever Maverick” pride for a chance to be featured in the show. Take a video of yourself celebrating in unique ways, such as moving your tassel, throwing confetti, or tossing or decorating your cap. Share photos or brief video clips of you and your friends enjoying your time on campus, or how you made the best of your last semester at UTA from home. Upload your photos or short videos at this website no later than Dec. 11, 2020 for a chance to be included in the celebration.
