Master’s graduates are invited to participate in two ceremonies: 1) The University-wide Commencement held in May 2017 at TDECU Stadium and 2) the Cullen College of Engineering Convocation, held in December 2016 and Spring 2017 at the UH Basketball Facility. Students who applied for graduation through myUH account by the designated deadlines, will get their names printed in the Commencement and Convocation programs.

University-wide Commencement is the formal university-wide celebration at which President Renu Khator officially confers degrees upon graduating students. The ceremony features a processional of graduates and faculty, remarks from the President, and a vibrant keynote speaker. University-wide Commencement is an event not to be missed for students, families, and friends. Students must reserve tickets for their guests.

The Cullen College Convocation is reserved only for engineering graduates. At the convocation each student is recognized, your friends and family will hear your name announced as you walk across the stage as well as any accolades. No reservations are required for this event.

Please note that only master's students are eligible to participate in the commencement and convocation.


All Master’s graduates participating in the Convocation & Commencement ceremonies are required to wear academic regalia. Graduation regalia may be ordered at the UH Bookstore Graduation Fair or directly from Herff-Jones online. For questions regarding regalia purchase, call the UH Bookstore at 713-748-0923.


Diplomas for master’s and certificate graduates will be mailed out 6-8 weeks after graduation. If you do not receive your diploma, call the Graduation Office at 713-743-1010.
