Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for hors d'oeuvres.  Ceremony at 7:00 p.m.


The VSC will verify proof of military service. Veterans that are receiving federal benefits (GI Bill) or state benefits (Hazlewood) already have this information on file with UT Dallas. Other veterans must present to the VSC one of the following: military ID or DD-214. R.O.T.C. students will be verified by their units at UTA or UNT.

Cords will be available at the Veteran Services Center the week of May 9th for graduating student veterans who are unable to attend the ceremony.
