MVC Awards & Veteran Cord Ceremony
Thu, Apr. 23
5 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Location: SSA 12.1C1

UT Dallas acknowledges the contributions and achievements made by the members of our armed services.

Students graduating from UT Dallas who serve or have served in the U.S. military, or who will be commissioned through R.O.T.C., are invited to wear a special red, white, & blue honor cord at fall and spring commencements. If you are graduating this May (or August), you and your guests are invited to attend a ceremony to honor your military service and recognize your academic achievement. 

The MVC 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 MVC one of the following: military ID or DD-214. R.O.T.C. cadets will be verified by their units at UTA and UNT. 

Additionally the following are invited to be recognized:

  • PAVE Peer Advisors
  • Student Veterans of America (SVA) Officers
  • SALUTE National Honor Society Inductees
  • Campus & Corporate Champions

RSVP is required at this link.

Doors open at 5:00 p.m. Ceremony at 5:30 p.m.


Cords and awards will be available at the Military and Veteran Center (SSA 14.250) the week of May 4th for student veterans who are unable to attend the ceremony.
