The university congratulates our 2013 fall graduates!

Fall Commencement will take place on Saturday, Dec. 7 and Sunday, Dec. 8. Convocation ceremonies by schools and colleges will honor about 3,064 students who will receive degrees at the end of the fall semester.

The graduating students include about 2,322 undergraduates, 576 students receiving their master’s degrees, 148 doctoral students and 18 law students.

UT Austin Tower


In honor of graduates receiving their degrees during the 2013 Fall Commencement ceremonies, the Tower will be lit orange with “13” displayed in the windows on each side. It will remain lit throughout the evening Saturday, Dec. 7, and again Sunday, Dec. 8.

In addition to official convocation and graduation ceremonies, other celebrations will honor graduating students. These include:

  • The Great Texas Exit, an open house event hosted by the Texas Exes alumni for members of the fall class and their families at the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center, 2110 San Jacinto Blvd. The event is from 5 to 7 p.m. on Dec. 6.
  • The fall Latino Graduation Ceremony, sponsored by the Latino Leadership Council, will be held at 3 p.m. on Dec. 8 in the Student Activity Center. Graduates should arrive by 1:30 p.m. The ceremony provides Latino graduates, along with their parents, family and friends, an opportunity to celebrate their success and accomplishments at the university.

Fall graduation activities do not include a university-wide commencement ceremony. More information about fall convocations for individual colleges and schools is available online.

Join us as we celebrate the remarkable achievements of the class of 2013. Hook ’em!
