We have opened registration but we are waiting for official confirmation from our venue. As soon as it is confirmed, we will update this information.
Helpful tip: Please think about the statement you would like read as you cross the stage before you register. Students have chosen to share post grad plans, shout out their family/hometown, or share inspirational quotes. This can be in English and/or Spanish. Please do not include letter accents when registering, as the registration system will convert the words into computer code.

About the Latinx Graduation Ceremony
Latinx Graduation Ceremony was created by students, for students. As a Latinx community at this university, we wanted a space to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments, successes, and achievements of all the Latinx graduates. More importantly, we know that the journey you have taken to get here has not been an easy one. We understand the sacrifices you and your family have made and the struggles you overcame, but you never gave up. You are a UT Latinx and you have made all of us proud.
This ceremony is a day of celebration for the entire Latinx community.
Esta ceremonia fue creada por estudiantes, para estudiantes. La presencia de los Latinos tiene una larga historia en UT Austin. Como comunidad Latinx en esta universidad, deseábamos crear un espacio para reconocer y celebrar los logros y éxitos de todos los graduados. Sinembargo, sabemos que el camino que han recorrido para llegar hasta aquí no ha sido fácil. Entendemos los sacrificios que ustedes como estudiantes y sus familias han hecho, los obstáculos que han tenido que superar, y las adversidades que han enfrentado. Aun así, nunca se dieron por vencidos, y como estudiantes latinos de UT, nos hacen sentir muy orgullosos.
Esta ceremonia es un día de celebración para toda la comunidad Latinx.
