Not Finding Graduation in August? Here’s Why

Tarleton State University holds commencement ceremonies three times a year: December, May, and July. Unfortunately, August doesn’t fall within any of these designated graduation windows. So, if you’re aiming to graduate in August, you’ll need to adjust your completion date slightly to participate in the closest ceremony.
