Graduation & Commencement

The Commencement ceremony is a formal celebration of the completion of your years of study at ODU. It is a chance for family and friends to share in your accomplishments as your name is called and you walk across the stage.

Please read the information below very carefully. You will find information below regarding the requirements that must be met to graduate.

Participating in the Commencement ceremony requires a separate registration. Please review the 'Commencement" section to make sure you have registered correctly.

Although we are happy to assist where we can, before contacting the Commencement Office, please review this information carefully. Many answers to common questions can be found on this page.
