Convocations & Receptions

Commencement is the ceremony where the degrees are officially conferred. It is the time for all of this academic year's graduates to 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!
