Accessible Services

Accessible Services

Check back here for more detailed information soon!

Services are available to those attending graduation ceremonies who may require specific accommodations based on accessibility needs.

A wheelchair user and companion will be permitted in accessible seating sections, subject to availability. Patrons who do not require wheelchair accessible seating but require other special accommodations may also exchange tickets for alternative locations that better accommodate their needs.

The University of Oklahoma recognizes the needs of persons with disabilities, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and continues to make every effort to accommodate individuals consistent with both ADA and State of Oklahoma accessibility mandates. In addition, the University of Oklahoma strives to accommodate the individual needs of guests with disabilities.
