The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth commencement ceremony, held each spring semester, is intended to recognize students who will complete all graduation requirements by the end of the spring semester and those that completed their requirements in the previous fall or summer semesters. In some cases, students ask to participate (“walk”) in commencement although they will not complete all graduation requirements in that semester.

Students are only eligible to participate in commencement if they will complete all degree requirements prior to the last day in their spring semester. Students with course(s), an internship or rotation to be completed in the upcoming summer or fall semester would not be eligible to participate in the previous spring commencement.

Students who would like to request to participate in a ceremony outside of their actual graduation semester should send an email to their College’s Dean and/or Associate dean for eligibility and approval.
