The May 1995 Commencement ceremony was UTSA's official commencement ceremony celebrating graduates of the May 1995 semester. It featured two back-to-back ceremonies, one at 10:00 a.m. and one at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 13 in the Convocation Center.

Along with the December 1994 Commencement, it was called "The Silver Anniversary Commencement." It was one of several events during the 1994-1995 academic year dedicated to celebrating UTSA's having made it to age 25 the previous June. (This dates to the legislative creation of UTSA on paper; it was only operational for 21 of those years and for only 19 of those years at the Main Campus.) Dr. Patricia A. Graham, UTSA Associate Vice President for Student Affairs, was chair of the Committee on Graduation Ceremonies.
