Virtual Commencement Ceremony

Although the coronavirus has delayed our in-person commencement ceremony, we are too proud of our graduates to let May go by without celebrating their amazing achievements.

We hope you’ll help us share this special time by leaving a shout-out below and join in the festivities on social media with #UTGrad2020.

For more 2020 commencement content, visit the Tickle College of Engineering’s commencement page and UT’s commencement page.

It’s nearly impossible to convey just how excited your family and friends are for you right now. You‘ve set out on a journey to make this world yours. Although your story is far from finished, you’ve created path that is yours alone, and that others are so proud of. The next steps in your journey will be challenging, exciting, difficult and wonderful. Remember that no matter where you go and what you do, you will never be without love and support. Congratulations! I can’t wait to see what’s next!

“Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.”
