SAN MARCOS, Texas — Texas State University students graduating this semester will have the option to choose whether to attend an in-person or virtual commencement.

Texas State announced that in-person, socially distanced commencement ceremonies will be held for fall 2020 candidates on Friday, Dec. 11, in Bobcat Stadium. A virtual ceremony will be held on Saturday, Dec. 12. 

Spring and summer graduates will also have the opportunity to attend in-person commencement ceremonies on Thursday, Dec. 10. Texas State said all in-person ceremonies will be live-streamed.

Candidates wishing to participate in an in-person ceremony must register. Registration emails will be sent to all candidates soon with links to register to their ceremony and secure a limited number of guest tickets, Texas State said.

All fall 2020 candidates will automatically be included in the virtual commencement ceremony unless they have a privacy hold.
