Tips for a successful Grad Gear Up:

Arrival and Check-In

Please arrive at to the Molly Shi Boren Ballroom in the Oklahoma Memorial Union 10 minutes prior to your appointment. Check-in will occur outside the south doors of the ballroom. At check-in, you will be provided with a personalized Gear-Up card. This card will contain the most current contact and degree information we have on file for you. Please discuss any discrepancies at check-in.

Regalia and Attire

You are not required to purchase regalia to participate in the virtual ceremony. If you do plan to purchase regalia, please have payment ready. Individual dressing stations with mirrors will be provided so students can put on their regalia and prepare for the walk across the stage.

If you choose not to wear regalia, please keep in mind that video and photos captured during this event may be used in the upcoming December Virtual Commencement ceremony. This may include full-length images that show shoes. You will have the opportunity to register for the Virtual Ceremony later this semester.

Social distancing and reduced capacity will be maintained during Gear-Up, so we are unable to accommodate guests during the event. University policy regarding masks will apply. During your photo and walk across the stage, you will be able to remove your mask since social distancing will be maintained .
