Commencement Security Policy

Oklahoma State University places an emphasis on safety and security at all commencement events. Please arrive early to avoid any possible delay in entering venues for commencement activities. Please see the Boone Pickens Stadium security policies and other information below related to commencement security.


All persons are subject to search upon entering the stadium. This includes but is not limited to graduates, guests, faculty and staff. Graduates and faculty for the Saturday ceremonies will enter via a security checkpoint, and should refrain from bringing personal items (i.e., handbags, backpacks, etc.) with them on commencement day. Please refer to the Boone Pickens Stadium clear bag and other security policies.


All guests will be subject to a security search upon entering the stadium. Inappropriate spirit banners, flags, or signs are not permitted. The use of poles to display these items is prohibited. Patrons may not be allowed to re-enter the facility once they have exited the stadium.


OSU is designated as a tobacco free campus. Tobacco and smoking preparation (electronic cigarettes, vapor devices, etc.) use is prohibited on university property. No soliciting allowed in or near the stadium.
