Two UHCL ceremonies honor fall students, prior ‘virtual’ graduates
Over 1,000 University of Houston-Clear Lake fall 2021 graduates will receive their degrees and be recognized during an in-person commencement ceremony on Dec. 12 at 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. at Minute Maid Park. Of those, 645 will be recognized for receiving their undergraduate degrees, and 363 will receive their graduate degrees.
The College of Science and Engineering and the College of Human Sciences and Humanities will confer 277 and 265 degrees, respectively, at the 12 p.m. session. The College of Business will confer 370, and 146 students in the College of Education will be honored at the 5 p.m. session.
The commencement address at both sessions will be delivered by noted Houston journalist and former KPRC-Ch. 2 anchor, Linda Lorelle.
Because spring, summer and fall commencements in 2020 and spring 2021 commencement were virtual due to restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be an in-person commencement ceremony to honor over 3,600 students from the Class of 2020 and Spring 2021 on Dec. 4 at 12 p.m. and 5 p.m., also at Minute Maid Park.
These combined candidates and graduates will join over 75,000 others who have graduated from the university. UHCL began as an upper-level university in 1974, admitting juniors, seniors and graduate students. The university expanded to admit underclassmen in 2014.
