This graduating class represents the largest number of graduating class in the University's history, an approximate 11 percent increase in degree conferrals over the 5,773 degrees awarded in Spring 2017. The newest commencement candidates will join the ranks of more than 220,000 UTA alumni around the globe.

The College Business realized a 54 percent increase in graduates for all degrees this semester compared to a year ago. The College of Liberal Arts saw a 23 percent increase in all degrees. The College of Nursing and Health Innovation and the College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs each realized a 14 percent increase in the number of graduates for all degrees this semester compared to Spring 2017.

"UTA graduation figures continue to keep pace with the state's need for a skilled workforce, especially the North Texas region," said Teik C. Lim, UTA provost and vice president for academic affairs. "With all the corporations that continue to relocate to Texas, we will continue to need more and better educated workers to meet that demand. UTA stands ready to provide the steady stream of needed talent."

Ceremonies begin Thursday, May 10, and continue through Saturday, May 12. Ceremony details are on UTA's Commencement Page.
