Graduates are seated during UTC's 2021 Spring graduation ceremony. Saturday, April 24, 2021.

Monday, March 21, graduates received a commencement RSVP survey to confirm several details about graduation. Details needing confirmation include attendance, name pronunciation, and the number of tickets needed. 

RSVPs will be accepted through April 25, 2022. 

The Office of the University Registrar stated, “Graduation Candidates who do not RSVP for their respective ceremony will not be permitted to attend Commencement.”

Due to construction on Mckenzie Arena, graduates have been given nine additional tickets for friends and family to attend. On April 26, graduates will be able to claim additional tickets on a first come first serve basis.

While wearing face masks is no longer required on-campus, individuals may still wear face masks, and UTC welcomes and encourages doing so in accordance with CDC guidelines.”

Although there is no rehearsal, graduates are asked to arrive 45 minutes prior to start time; they will receive additional instructions on the day of commencement.  Commencement ceremonies are expected to last two hours.
