The May 2005 Commencement ceremony was UTSA's official commencement ceremony celebrating graduates of the Spring 2005 and Summer 2005 semesters. It featured four ceremonies in the Convocation Center. The first was Friday, May 13 at 5:00 p.m. and the others on Saturday, May 14 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 last commencement to only have four ceremonies and the first to have music performed at the receptions. Mariachi Las Erendiras, who performed the recessional music in May 2004, were moved to the receptions and UTSA's own mariachi group Mariachi Los Paisanos took over recessional duties.
