Accessible Services

Click on the button below to request accessible services for Commencement.

Services are available to graduates and guests attending Commencement who may require specific accommodations based on accessibility needs.

If you need accessible services for a specific college's Convocation please contact the college directly. 

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.

Accessible Parking is located immediately east of The Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Please enter this lot from Brooks Street. Commencement ushers will be available with wheelchairs and golf carts to assist guests with accessible needs to Gate 9 on the east side of the stadium. After checking in, we also will assist you to the accessible seating area. After Commencement, ushers will be available to assist guests back to the accessible parking lot.
