Hundreds of graduates and their families will gather for a cherished milestone at December Graduation, which will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, in the Marano Campus Center convocation hall and arena.

Commencement is a celebrated occasion for graduates, family, friends, faculty and others to mark the outstanding achievements of our students. Each student will receive six tickets with the purchase of their regalia. Caps and gowns may be purchased online between Dec. 2 and 11 or in our Campus Center store from Dec. 5 through graduation. 

The formal Commencement ceremony features a procession of faculty in academic robes, concise acknowledgement of students graduating with honors, and graduates crossing the stage in recognition of their achievement. A professional photographer will document students as they participate. More details for visitors can be found on the Guest Information page.

Seating for our guests is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors with physical disabilities who will need special seating or other arrangements should call 312-3358 in advance.

An interactive campus map with parking information is available online.

Those unable to attend can watch it as a live Webcast or either live or rebroadcast on local cable.  You also can share your excitement via the #ozgrad hashtag on Twitter.
