President Daniel will appear at a meet and greet for graduates on Tuesday, as well as alternative commencement ceremonies on Sunday. Fall graduates may choose to walk in May, if they prefer.

The University of Texas at Dallas has scheduled alternative fall graduation celebrations to recognize students whose commencement ceremonies were canceled due to a severe ice storm in the Dallas-Fort Worth area last week.

The University encourages graduates to participate in these events marking their academic milestone, but regardless of whether they attend, diplomas will be mailed to all graduates after degrees are certified.

“I hope that every graduate and as many family members as possible will be able to participate in at least one of the alternatives that we will be providing to recognize our fall graduates’ academic achievements,” said UT Dallas President David E. Daniel. “I greatly appreciate the patience and understanding of everyone involved as we cope with this unfortunate weather.”

Alternative graduation celebrations are as follows:
