Message from President Boyd to Fall 2020 Graduates

All ceremonies will take place on Chamberlain Field, and all ceremony times are in Eastern Time Zone. In the event of inclement weather, the alternate location and details will be communicated to you via email, social media, and UTC’s website.

Closed Captioning

Those in attendance at the graduation ceremonies have the option of accessing a StreamText link to view the live closed captions. StreamText is a text platform that delivers real-time/live captions, and can be accessed by going to https://www.streamtext.net/player?event=UTC during the graduation ceremonies.

LiveStream viewers in need of closed captioning may view the video stream in the same window as the closed captioning.

Guests are not permitted to attend the ceremony

In an effort to follow COVID-19 protocol, no guests will be permitted to attend any ceremony. All ceremonies will be live streamed so family and friends can watch from the comfort of home.

Prior to coming on campus for your ceremony, you should complete UTC’s COVID-19 student self-check screening available here. Throughout all ceremonies, masks and social distancing will be required.

You are welcome to wear your cap and gown to your ceremony but may instead wear business professional attire (what you would wear to a job interview) if you prefer.
