Commitment to student success
Combined with ceremonies for branch campus and educational sites around Texas for Texas A&M University Galveston Campus, School of Law, College of Medicine, College of Dentistry and Irma Lerma Rangel College of Pharmacy, students completing 10,477 degrees in undergraduate, graduate and professional programs, as well as over 500 program certificates will be recognized.
Commencement is 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 take away from the special moment. Due to the large anticipated participation, facility occupancy will be monitored closely for safety. Overflow seating will be available across the parking lot from Reed Arena in the AgriLife Center at 556 John Kimbrough Blvd. on the Texas A&M campus.
Supported by growing enrollments, student success initiatives and timely graduation incentives, this spring’s ceremonies will feature the highest number of bachelor’s degrees (7,710), master’s degrees (1,906), professional degrees (635) and doctoral degrees (226) for any one semester in the university’s, as well as state of Texas’, history. This number of degrees also places Texas A&M among the nation’s leaders in the number of students achieving degrees this semester.
