Commencement

Concordia University Texas holds commencement services two times per year. The fall term service takes place on the first Saturday in December. The spring term service takes place on the Saturday preceding the close of the term. Commencement details are subject to change.

Commencement is the celebration of completing your degree. For information about graduation and completing your degree requirements, see Graduation.

Fall 2021 Commencement

The primary commencement ceremony is scheduled for December 4, 2021.

We have also tentatively scheduled a secondary commencement date for December 11, 2021; please note that this date has been scheduled in the event that logistical considerations necessitate two ceremony dates.

The Office of Academic Operations is actively reviewing plans for the Fall 2021 Commencement and will have details, including location(s) and ceremony times, publicly finalized by October 15, 2021.
