NORMAN, Okla.  — The University of Oklahoma is hosting a virtual graduation ceremony in the fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision comes in light of the university’s COVID-19 capacity limits for all campus classrooms, spaces and venues, which have been developed to accommodate social distancing best practices, according to university officials.

OU’s virtual graduation ceremony is set to take place Friday, Dec. 18, at 7 p.m. on the university's website.

We are tremendously proud of our soon-to-be graduates, whose resilience and achievements are an inspiration to the entire OU community. While our December convocations will take on a different form this year, this in no way diminishes our pride in these remarkable students. We look forward to celebrating their rightfully earned place in the OU alumni family.
OU President Joseph Harroz Jr.

Officials said both May and December graduates will also be invited to participate in next year’s university-wide in-person spring commencement ceremony.
