The May 2004 Commencement ceremony was UTSA's official commencement ceremony celebrating graduates of the Spring 2004 and Summer 2004 semesters. It featured four ceremonies in the Convocation Center. The first was Friday, May 7 at 5:00 p.m. and the others on Saturday, May 8 at 9:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 5:00 p.m. Each ceremony was followed by a reception on the East Lawn of the Convocation Center.

This commencement marks the first May commencement to have a fourth ceremony and the first to have the receptions moved from the University Center to the East Lawn. The welcome from the Alumni Association was moved to before the commencement address, perhaps to make the 1:00 p.m. ceremony smoother, where the Alumni Association president was also the commencement speaker. Also, the recessional music, instead of being Handel's Water Music, became a mariachi band. Degrees were conferred during the second and third ceremonies by Cyndi Taylor Krier, whose husband gave the commencement addresses at both May 1999 ceremonies. This was her third UTSA commencement to participate in.
