The University of Houston - Victoria has made the decision to postpone UHV’s spring commencement ceremonies because of concerns about COVID-19 and restrictions on event sizes. The ceremonies will be rescheduled for this summer or fall when local, state and federal restrictions allow and it is safe for us to come together again  UHV issued this statement on their website 'UHV recognizes that commencement is a joyous time and an incredible accomplishment to be celebrated by our graduates and their families. We will immediately begin planning a postponed commencement for Spring 2020 graduates as soon as health conditions and guidelines allow. We will continue to keep our graduates and UHV community informed as these plans are developed.'
