May 2021 Commencement and Future Ceremonies

The May 2021 ceremonies for the Class of 2020 are planned for 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Friday, May 7, (with an additional ceremony planned for noon May 7, if needed). All 2020 graduates who intend to walk in May 2021 will be required to notify the university no later than March 1, 2021 by emailing graduation_rsvp@tcu.edu. Regalia for any Commencement ceremony that graduates from the Class of 2020 choose to walk in will be paid for by TCU.

All 2020 graduates from May, August and December are invited to participate in any convenient future Commencement to ensure each graduate who chooses to walk will have the opportunity to do so. The Registrar’s Office has created a separate email account specific to the Class of 2020 to RSVP for a future ceremony ‑ graduation_rsvp@tcu.edu.
