Texas A&M University will award approximately 5,428 degrees to fall graduates at in-person commencement ceremonies this month. Commencements in College Station will be held Dec. 16-17 for undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral students. Texas A&M University at Galveston will host two commencement ceremonies on Dec. 16.
“Our graduates worked incredibly hard to achieve this milestone. Their families, support units and the faculty and staff of Texas A&M University are excited to celebrate this achievement with them,” said Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Alan Sams. “We congratulate each of them on earning their degree, and we look forward to seeing how they contribute to their communities and become leaders in society.”
Of the degrees awarded this fall, approximately 103 will go to students at the School of Law in Fort Worth; Texas A&M University at Galveston will confer 157 degrees; and 270 Health Science Center students in locations across the state will earn their diplomas. Texas A&M University at Qatar, which operates on a different academic calendar, awarded 16 degrees in November.
All four College Station ceremonies will be televised live by KAMU-TV and livestreamed via the KAMU website at www.kamutvfm.org.
Graduates will have their names called and walk the stage, then return to their seats. Diplomas will be mailed after the ceremony. Diploma tubes will be provided at the ceremonies for photographs.
School officials note commencements are a celebration of each student’s accomplishments, and every effort is made to ensure safety, security, and decorum of a public event befitting their success. Guests are encouraged to refrain from disruptive behaviors, which may negatively impact this special moment for students and their families. Clear bags are also required at all commencement ceremonies at Reed Arena.
