REGARDING: 2019 Spring Commencement
The University of Texas at El Paso Spring Commencement is scheduled for Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19, in the Don Haskins Center.
This ceremony is a high point of our students’ experience at UTEP and a celebration of their achievements. Our participation as staff in this ceremony means a great deal to our students, their families, and the university. We also have the opportunity to personally congratulate our students and wish them well on this very special day. I strongly encourage all of you to participate in our Commencement and contribute to its success.
Business Attire or Academic regalia is the dress code. Please direct your regalia purchase questions to the University Bookstore at 747-5594.

• The Staff Marshal will lead staff into their seats during the ceremonious procession.
• At the end of the ceremony, faculty and staff will form two ceremonial lines along the center aisle to congratulate the students as they exit, then exit through the tunnel.
• The ceremonies are approximately two hours in duration.
