• Congratulations Graduates!

    Dear Candidate for Graduation:
    Those who get to the point of graduation do so after years of determination and hard work. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your accomplishment. Please refer to the following information for details in preparing for commencement.

    Sincerely,
    Kacey Higgins
    Registrar

    Dressing for Graduation

    Black or very dark dress shoes, slacks, or skirt (must not hang below the robe) will be worn. The graduation ceremony will be filmed and pictures will be taken so please dress in the requested attire. Further instructions will be given for the appropriate attire during rehearsal. If you have bright colored shoes which would suite your dress more, you are welcome to change after the ceremony for further pictures, parties, or luncheons.

    Commencement and Diploma Name

    Your name will be called at Commencement and printed on your diploma exactly as you indicated on your diploma card. Any changes must be submitted prior to commencement by contacting Paula Fine in the Registrar's office by email - pfine@hsutx.edu.

    Van Ellis Theatre
    Graduates, be in Van Ellis Theatre one hour before your ceremony begins. Do not bring any personal belongings or valuables with you since there is no secure areas available. You will be given final instructions by a faculty member and representatives from the Registrar's office will assist you in getting in the right place at the right time.
