Commencement

After careful consideration and with the utmost concern for the health and well-being of our graduates and their families, UIW has made the difficult decision to cancel the Spring 2020 commencement ceremonies. The events, which were to be held Friday, May 8 and Saturday, May 9 at the Freeman Coliseum, will now take place online in a virtual format in May.

The time and date of the virtual ceremony will be shared as soon as possible. Graduates who were scheduled to participate in the May ceremony will also be offered the opportunity to take part in our December commencement ceremony. In the meantime, our teams are working to develop additional opportunities to recognize our Spring 2020 graduates’ achievements this fall, and the Commencement Committee will share those with you in the coming weeks.

Details regarding caps, gowns, special initiatives, etc., are forthcoming. Announcements will be shared as information becomes available. If you have any questions about the May 2020 commencement ceremony, please email pr@uiwtx.edu.

Maymester and Summer 2020 Sessions

UIW will continue to offer all classes online during the Maymester and Summer 2020 sessions. This change will be in effect for all courses in May, in the full Summer “extended” session, Summer I and Summer II. We will continue to monitor the virus situation closely, and if it becomes safe to return to campus, faculty will explore the possibility of adding on-campus courses to the summer schedule.

Students should work closely with their advisors to review the summer schedules starting Monday, April 6 to check for the most current summer offerings.
