Commencement Update


Updated May 21, 2020


Video to Celebrate Spring and Summer 2020 Graduates

OStateTV aired a special video on Friday, May 8 at 7 p.m. Central Time to recognize our spring and summer degree candidates. Visit Celebrating the Class of 2020 to watch this special tribute. A list of all degree candidates can be found here.


Graduation Deadlines and Processes

Students who plan to complete their degree this spring or summer must apply to graduate from Self-Service (regardless of when the commencement ceremony is scheduled). We will verify degree requirements after the semester ends, award degrees to transcripts from late May through the end of June, and expect to mail spring diplomas by July 1.


Commencement Ceremonies

We are excited to recognize our spring and summer 2020 graduates during our December ceremonies (Dec. 11 and 12), when we can celebrate our entire Class of 2020 together in Stillwater. These ceremonies will celebrate our actual spring and summer 2020 graduates, as well as our fall 2020 degree candidates.


An online RSVP will be sent to spring and summer graduates shortly after spring final exams to help us plan. Details of ceremonies, receptions, and other related activities will be updated on this site as they become available. We will be planning additional activities in conjunction with the December commencement ceremonies to allow graduates to connect with friends and experience some of the memorable campus events that are normally held in the spring.


For those who are unable to participate in the December events, we are exploring options to recognize you virtually or at other future ceremonies. December commencement ceremonies are also planned in Tulsa for OSU-Tulsa on Dec. 13. OSU Center for Health Sciences degree candidates will be receiving specific communications about your events as details are available.


We appreciate your understanding as we must take the unprecedented step of postponing your in-person spring graduation experience. If you have feedback or questions, please email us at We will provide additional details on this website when they are available.  


We look forward to celebrating yet another exceptional Oklahoma State University graduating class. Go Pokes!
