Have you begun planning your trip to The University of Oklahoma for Commencement? Here are some things to remember as you make plans.
What is the difference between Commencement and College Convocations? Commencement is the ceremony where the degrees are officially conferred. It is when all of this academic year's graduates and their loved ones celebrate the culmination of their time at OU. Doctoral degree candidates will be recognized at this time.
At the College Convocations, graduates will be recognized. Candidates’ names will be announced, they will have their picture taken, and they will be presented with a diploma cover by their college dean.
To have the complete graduation experience, graduates are expected to attend both Commencement and their Convocation!

Commencement, the University-wide graduation ceremony, is held at the end of the spring semester to celebrate summer, December and May graduates. Degrees are officially conferred at Commencement. Filled with pageantry, this ceremony includes an address from OU President David Boren and the Commencement speaker. Doctoral degree candidates are recognized individually during the ceremony and undergraduate and master’s candidates are recognized as a group. The ceremony concludes with a gigantic fireworks display.
We hope you will join us for Commencement 2018!
