Spring 2023 Commencement Photo (1)More than 600 students will cross the stage when UNT Dallas Spring 2024 Commencement ceremonies are held on Tuesday, May 14, 2024, at the Texas Trust CU Theater in Grand Prairie.

For undergraduates, it will mark the end of four years filled with challenges and opportunities. For some, it will be a pathway to graduate school, medical school or law school. For graduate students, it will signify another accomplishment in their academic and professional journeys.

In all, 626 students will participate from the UNT Dallas Schools of Business, Behavioral Health and Human Services, Liberal Arts and Sciences, Education, and the UNT Dallas Graduate School. 550 are undergraduates, with 76 graduate students. 

You may see graduates wearing cords and stoles, which represent academic accomplishments, military service, community service or service-learning activities, and campus organization membership and leadership.

She is well-known in the DFW region and has achieved a milestone in her profession. She has broken many glass ceilings in her life and career. She is certain to have a message of inspiration that will resonate with our graduates and audiences.

Ceremonies will take place at 11 a.m. for the Schools of Business and Education and 3 p.m. for the Schools of Behavioral Health and Human Services and Liberal Arts and Sciences. Participation is voluntary, so not all Spring 2024 graduates will be in attendance.
