Graduation Candidate,
 
The University of Oklahoma will honor its fall 2020 graduates in a virtual graduation ceremony at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 18. Graduation Gear-Up is an event that allows you to prepare for the virtual ceremony. A new element that has been incorporated into this year’s Graduation Gear-Up is a physical replica of the OU graduation stage, which will be available for you to walk across while your name is called. We will provide you with a photo and video clip of your walk across the stage, which you can include in your individual recognition slide to be displayed during the virtual ceremony. No purchases are required to participate in the virtual graduation ceremony.
 

Due to the success of the first Graduation Gear-Up Event a few weeks ago and requests for an additional opportunity, another Graduation Gear-Up is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, October 26 and Tuesday, October 27, in the Molly Shi Boren Ballroom, located on the third floor of the Oklahoma Memorial Union, 900 Asp Ave.

 To facilitate social distancing and reduce capacity, appointments are required. 

During Graduation Gear-Up, you can:

  • Purchase your cap and gown
  • Select and order your graduation announcements
  • Order your official OU class ring
  • Learn about the new role you will be assuming as alumni, including making a lasting mark on OU’s campus by contributing to the Class of 2021 gift
  • Be entered to win one of the following door prizes
    • An OU class ring or announcement package provided by Jostens
    • A cap and gown package or an OU diploma frame provided by Jostens
    • A photo package provided by Party Pics

All major credit cards, checks and cash are acceptable payment for cap and gown, graduation announcements and OU class ring. For more information on the December virtual graduation ceremony or Graduation Gear-Up, please call (405) 325-1701 or email specialevents@ou.edu.
