Texas A&M University will hold commencement ceremonies March 11-13 for students who graduated in May and August of 2020 but were unable to participate in commencement ceremonies due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

All ceremonies will be held at Kyle Field, and about 5,000 students are expected to participate.

Over the past several months, Texas A&M officials conducted a survey of graduates to determine the best possible dates for spring ceremonies, and the March 11-13 time frame was the most popular choice.

“Last spring, as we recognized the harm and loss of life that COVID-19 was capable of, we made the very difficult decision to postpone the May 2020 commencement ceremonies,” said Mark Weichold, interim provost and executive vice president.

“Under the COVID-19 conditions extant in August 2020, we had to make the same decision for those degree candidates as well. I am pleased now that we will be able to provide the opportunity for these graduates with the recognition they so richly deserve at a ceremony to take place in March in Kyle Field. This venue is ideally suited for the large crowds of happy family and friends we expect and will also provide a distinctive air of festivity. We are very proud of our graduates and are looking forward to celebrating their accomplishments.”

December 2020 graduates who opted out of their respective ceremonies are also eligible to attend the March make-up commencements.

Graduates’ names will be read as they cross the stage and receive their diploma tube. Graduates who wish to participate should notify the Office of the Registrar at so that their names will be included on the roll call.

A full schedule of the ceremonies is available here.
