Congratulations, Spartans!

After years of challenging and rewarding work, you are going to earn your degree! What an important milestone!

December 2020 Virtual Commencement

December Commencement is Saturday, Dec. 5, 2020.

The University of Tampa recognizes that commencement represents an important celebration of our graduates’ academic achievement. With the conclusion of the May Virtual Commencement ceremony, the Office of Orientation and Family Engagement has begun planning for the December Virtual Commencement ceremony. 

May 2020 Virtual Commencement 

The final semester for our May graduates abruptly ended due to COVID-19 pandemic. While the safety of our campus community and guests is our top priority, this does not undermine the importance of celebrating the accomplishment of this milestone.

Despite these challenges, the University made it a priority to honor and celebrate our students and their families and hosted a virtual May ceremony on May 9 for spring graduates. Check out the virtual ceremony video for your specific college now by going to the May 2020 Virtual Commencement page. 

If you have any questions regarding the mailing of graduate kits, please reach out to the University Bookstore.
