Veterans Graduation Reception

Veteran Graduate Reception

What is the Veterans Graduation?
Veteran Graduation Reception recognizes the academic achievements and contributions of student veterans at Texas State.
This celebration does not replace the official Texas State commencement ceremony.  It does add a special touch to the official ceremony by providing graduates with an opportunity to celebrate their success with family, friends, mentors and supporters.
What to expect and wear?
We encourage you to wear your Official Texas State Regalia (cap and gown) as there will be numerous opportunities for photographs.  Graduates who attend the celebrations will receive a certificate and a sash. Programs will include a light reception, keynote speaker, entertainment, awards ceremony and presentation of cords. See registration pages for detailed information.
Unable to attend Veterans Graduation - Pick Up Cords
If you are unable to attend the Veterans Graduation and/or would like to pick up a cord prior to commencement (i.e. graduation photos), drop by the SDI Office.
