SBMI Graduation

Class of 2021

Commencement Ceremony

Congratulations to the class of 2021. We are excited to let you know we have begun making plans for this year’s commencement ceremonies. This year, our goal is to create an experience that honors the hard work, growth, and dedication you have shown throughout your time here.

For the first time in the history of the university, our commencement ceremonies will be held at Minute Maid Park. In this new location, we are able to keep you and your guests’ safety a top priority to follow federal and state COVID-19 safety guidelines, and encourage social distancing, disinfection, and live streaming of the event.

This is a moment of great pride and joy for you, your advisors, Deans, and UTHealth leadership. You have faced both the expected rigors of your studies, and the unexpected twists and turns that life brings, to celebrate this culmination of being presented with your degree. We look forward to celebrating with you.

Please mark your calendar for SBMI’s Ceremony.
