Celebrating the Accomplishments of our Graduates

2019 Commencement 

May 2 – 4

Dear Graduate-to-be:

Congratulations! We are pleased that you plan to participate in one of the commencement ceremonies. Please take the time to read this commencement information and be prepared for a great and memorable day.

You will find a graduation application here. Graduation application deadline is April 12. After that date, students may submit a graduation application and may participate in the appropriate commencement ceremony, but their name will not be printed in the program.

Commencement participants with disabilities should contact Kim Liebscher, Interim Dean of Students (580.774.3767) by April 27 if they need special assistance during commencement. There is seating and parking for family members with disabilities, but we advise them to arrive early for the best choice of seats and parking.

If you have not already arranged for your cap and gown for the ceremony, contact the University Bookstore at 580.774.3792. The deadline for ordering cap and gown through the bookstore is March 8. A special event, Senior Salute, will be held by the bookstore on February 20 and 21, to allow students to order announcements, rings, etc.

All ceremonies will be live web-streamed. A link will be paced here during commencement week to watch the web-streaming.
