It is time to begin making plans for your graduation from Texas Tech University at the end of this fall. I hope that you and your family and friends plan to attend the Commencement ceremony at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, December 15th, 2023, in the United Supermarkets Arena.
You must register for the ceremony if you wish to be recognized. You should receive an email from TTU Commencement with instructions on how to register. The deadline to register is November 19th. Please plan to arrive one hour prior to your ceremony with your printed GRAD PASS. Instructions on how to print your GRAD PASS will be sent prior to commencement. Please note: the clear bag policy will be in effect for all graduates and guests.
You may pick up your diploma at the graduation reception outside 104 Holden Hall immediately following the commencement ceremony until 5:00pm. You may also pick up your diploma in the Dean's Office (102 Holden Hall) from December 18th – 22nd and January 2nd – 5th. If you do not pick up your diploma, it will be mailed at the end of January.
Per University policy, a diploma cannot be issued to a student who has any financial obligation to the University. Returned/unclaimed diplomas will be kept for one year. After that time, you will need to order a reissued diploma for $50 plus shipping and handling through the Office of the Registrar.

Again, congratulations on your achievements thus far, and I wish you the best in all your future endeavors.
