The University of Oklahoma Fall 2014 Convocation/Recognition Event/Reception Schedule

What is the difference between Commencement and College Convocations?

Commencement is the ceremony where the degrees are officially conferred. Filled with pageantry, it is the time for all 2014/2015 graduates to celebrate the culmination of their time at OU. President Boren will address the graduates, and the Commencement speaker will offer remarks. Doctoral degree candidates will be recognized at this time. Fall 2014 graduates are invited to come back to campus to celebrate their outstanding achievements at Commencement 2015, which will take place at 7 pm on Friday, May 8, 2015 at The Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

At the College Convocations, graduates will be recognized. Candidates’ names will be announced, they will have their picture taken, and they will be presented a diploma cover by their college dean. This is the time for candidates to celebrate with those in their college. The schedule of Convocations and Recognition Ceremonies is listed below.

To have the complete graduation experience, graduates are invited to attend both their Convocation and Commencement!
