The December 2013 Commencement ceremony was UTSA's official commencement ceremony celebrating graduates of the Summer 2013 and Fall 2013 semesters. It was the second commencement to take place in the Alamodome.

The number of ceremonies was increased from two to three, presumably because two ceremonies leaves too many names to call. They were Friday, December 20 at 4:00 p.m. and Saturday, December 21 at 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The commencement program underwent a periodic redesign for this ceremony, making it considerably smaller than the previous version. The program did not mention an address on behalf of the Alumni Association.
