The university-wide commencement has been moved to the Coliseum due to inclement weather conditions expected Saturday.

The mass commencement had been scheduled for Apogee Stadium. However, UNT President Neal Smatresk determined Thursday afternoon the weather on Saturday would not allow for the ceremony to be held outdoors, UNT spokeswoman Margarita Venegas said.

The Weather Channel forecasts thunderstorms and an 80 percent chance of rain for Saturday.

Additionally, due to muddy conditions, Jazz on the Hill festivities have been cancelled.

The Denton County Transportation Authority has partnered with the university to offer free transits to and from commencement ceremonies on Friday and Saturday. On Friday, operations will begin at 7 a.m. and run until 10:30 p.m. Saturday, shuttle services will be available at 7:30 a.m. The last shuttle will depart Apogee Stadium (or the Super Pit) at 11:15 p.m. For details and further transportation schedules, visit the DCTA website.

The North Texas Daily is following the story. Developments will be posted as they are made available.
