Tuesday, May 9, 2023 @ 7 p.m.
The 2023 OU-Tulsa Convocation will take place on Tuesday, May 9, at 7:00 p.m. at the Reynolds Center on the University of Tulsa campus.
Graduates from Fall 2022, Spring 2023, and Summer 2023 are invited to participate. Each student's name will be called as they walk across the stage. Masters and Doctoral candidates will be hooded on stage by their faculty.
Regalia is Required
All graduates should wear appropriate caps, gowns, and tassels. Masters and doctoral level students will also be "hooded" as part of the Convocation ceremony, and must have their hood with them so as to be hooded on stage. While the official OU regalia is not required, you will need to be in a black gown. Details on the specific regalia items needed for each level of degree and program on the OU-Tulsa campus can be found in our OU-Tulsa regalia guide.
To purchase regalia, please email TulsaSA@ou.edu to schedule an appointment time. You will be required to pay with exact cash or check, so please reach out to the Student Affairs team to figure out your exact cost.
Day-of Instructions for Graduates
On the evening of Tuesday, May 9, 2023, OU-Tulsa graduates need to check-in at the Reynolds Center between 6:00 - 6:15 p.m. Please enter near the northwest lower level entrance marked "graduates and faculty." Volunteers will check you in and direct you to the designated staging area for your degree program. Please only bring belongings you can discreetly carry with you or place under your seat on the arena floor. Each graduate will be given a card at check-in with their name printed on it; this card will be used to announce your name as you walk across the stage, so please do not lose it.
A photography team will be on site at the Convocation ceremony. The photographs taken will be available for purchase within a few weeks following the ceremony.
During the ceremony, all guests should stay out of graduate/faculty seating areas in the stadium seating and the arena floor. All aisles should be kept clear as well.
To pre-register with Candid Color, please click here. Registration does not commit you to purchasing photos, but it is the only way to receive proofs of your graduation photos and will speed up the check-in process on May 9.
Diplomas & Transcripts
Official diplomas will be mailed to each student's address on file with the University roughly 10-12 weeks after completion of coursework, depending on your campus affiliation (HSC or Norman). Official transcripts may be requested earlier; email the OU-Tulsa Student Enrollment Center for additional information.
