Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! We hope you are planning to attend our May 2019 Convocation.
Date: Saturday, May 11, 2019
Time: 1 p.m.
Student Arrival Time: Noon
Location: Catlett Music Center
RSVP: Graduates are required to RSVP and bring no more than seven guests to ensure seating for all in attendance. The RSVP deadline is April 29, 2019. Wristbands will be distributed to students for their guests at check-in.
Parking: Elm St. Parking Garage (adjacent to Catlett Music Center)
Due to the number of potential graduates we are anticipating this spring, we will be issuing admission wristbands to graduates for their guests attending the Convocation. Because our Convocation venue, Paul F. Sharp Music Hall, has limited seating, the OU Graduation Office is requiring that physical tickets be issued to each graduate and that attendance be restricted to only those guests who are wearing an admission wristband. Each graduate will receive seven wristbands for their guests. Children under six, or children that can sit on someone’s lap, will not need a wristband; all other guests must have the wristband to gain admission into the auditorium.
The wristbands are non-transferable. They may not be traded, sold or gifted to other students. Each student will receive their wristbands when they check in for Convocation, and it is the student’s responsibility to distribute the wristbands to their guests. Due to the limited time between Convocations, we must start on time. Late arrivals to the Convocation, or graduates who fail to RSVP, will not be accommodated. If you have responded that you will participate in the ceremony and later find that you will not be able to attend, please contact Missy Mitchell at email@example.com to let her know. This aids in our planning to ensure we start on time.
The Wednesday following our RSVP deadline, we will determine if there are any available seats in Catlett. If so, will we make those additional seats available to our graduates and guests on a first come, first served basis. No more than two additional seats will be granted per graduate, if they’re available.
We look forward to seeing you at Convocation!
