Graduation Information

It’s that time of the school year again–time for Spring Commencement!

Graduating college (both as a student or a family member with an  upcoming graduate) can be a whirlwind of excitement, fear, uncertainty and joy. With that in mind, here is some information to help with this huge milestone.

Caps & Gowns

This week is the “Senior Salute“, a time  when graduating seniors (and graduate students) can go over to ACAC and pick up their caps and gowns, meet with representatives from the Business Office, Registrar, Financial Aid, and Graduate School in one convenient location. A student’s cap and gown is provided at no cost, however, announcements, class rings and pictures will be available for a price.

Josten’s partners with TU for all of the regalia, announcements, and rings, so you may order online as well. Students who are unable to attend the Senior Salute this week are able to make arrangements to pick up caps and gowns by contacting the Office of Student Affairs at 631-2327.

The Big Day – May 11th @ 10AM

There are many different activities unique to the various schools and departments, so your student is encouraged to check his/her email or contact an adviser to inquire about special activities outside of the commencement ceremony.

A schedule for the event is available online, however it is always best to contact the various schools and departments directly for more information.

The University of Tulsa has a single commencement ceremony for all students graduating this semester–some universities split up graduation ceremonies by college or degree. The ceremony takes place in the Reynold’s Center (#82 on this campus map).

 

These are just some of the things that we have had questions about in the past, please feel free to comment on this post or email us at tuparents@gmail.com if you have any other questions or concerns.
