May 2022 Ceremonies


Ceremonies

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 2021/2022 graduates to celebrate the culmination of their time at the University of Oklahoma. OU President Joseph Harroz, Jr. will address the graduates, and the Commencement speaker will offer remarks.

Doctoral degree candidates will be individually 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 receive their diploma cover. This is the time for candidates to celebrate with those in their college.

To experience the complete graduation experience, graduates are expected to attend both Commencement and their Convocation.
