Souvenir Program and Shorthorn Graduation Edition

INCLUSION IN THE COMMENCEMENT BOOKLET AND THE GRADUATION EDITION OF THE SHORTHORN

For your name to be included in the souvenir commencement booklet and the graduation edition of the Shorthorn, you must insure that your privacy preference settings in MyMav are set to allow that inclusion. In addition to inclusion in these publications, your name will also be given to the University's official commencement photographer, the UT Arlington Bookstore, the Student Alumni Association and select other official commencement vendors who provide event products and services to graduates and their families.

You have three options for indicating your inclusion preference in MyMav.  Navigation to the privacy elections pages in MyMav (pdf).

Option 1: Release Restrictions on Name(s).

This option indicates that UT Arlington may release your name to external agencies, on request, as well as permit inclusion in the commencement booklet and as discussed above. 

Option 2:  Release All Restrictions.

This option indicates that UT Arlington may release any or all of your directory information as well as permit inclusion in the commencement booklet and as discussed above.  For a listing of directory information, click on the Directory Information link on this page.

Option 3: Designate Primary Name as Releasable for Specified Publication. 

This option indicates that UT Arlington may release your name for publication in the commencement booklet, the graduation edition of The Shorthorn, and given to the official commencement vendors and associations, but not to other external publications, vendors, associations or agencies that are not affiliated with the UT Arlington commencement event, unless you provide your written permission.

The Restriction Exception field in MyMav is shown below:

Students who have opted to restrict all directory information in MyMAV will not appear in the printed commencement program unless the commencement program is specified as explained above.

To insure that your name is included in the printed booklet that is distributed at each ceremony, we recommend that you make this change no later than at the time you apply for graduation.

NOTE: Your name will appear as it appears on MyMav in the "Primary Name" field. If you want to change how it reads, you will need to submit a name change request.
