Commencement

Texas A&M University at Galveston holds Commencement Exercises in May, August and December of each year.  The upcoming schedule is as follows:

Spring 2016 Commencement Rehearsal:

Date:         Friday, May 13, 2016
Time:        10:00 am
Location: Texas A&M University at Galveston

A brief rehearsal will include a run-through of the ceremony, as well as give you up to the minute details about this important event.  You will receive a seating chart (so you will know where to sit and who should be seated next to you), and ensure the announcer has the correct pronunciation of your name.  It is a good idea to wear the shoes that you plan to wear to the actual ceremony.  You do not need to bring your cap and gown.
