TAMS Graduation 2020

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 concerns, and in line with state and CDC recommendations, the University President has made the difficult decision to postpone Spring Commencement, which includes TAMS Graduation. The President’s message is available to read at the following link: https://www.unt.edu/covid-19-update-commencement. Updates and information will be relayed as we receive it from the President.

We hope that everyone is staying safe and taking precautions to help lessen the spread of the virus. This is something we have never faced in our lifetimes and we appreciate your patience as we find alternate ways to serve our students.
