The University of Oklahoma will hold a virtual graduation ceremony for its fall 2020 graduates, the school announced Wednesday.
The decision was made due to COVID-19 restrictions on campus.
The ceremony will be held at 7 p.m. on Dec. 18.
Along with the OU alumni who graduated in May 2020, December graduates will be invited to participate in the 2021 university-wide, in-person spring commencement ceremony.
“We are tremendously proud of our soon-to-be graduates, whose resilience and achievements are an inspiration to the entire OU community,” said OU President Joseph Harroz Jr. “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.”
