Spring Commencement 2020

Coronavirus update:

Following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's recommendation that no large events be held within the next eight weeks, spring commencement has been postponed. We hope to reschedule the event yet this spring and plan to communicate a decision later this month that aligns with public health guidelines. We remain fully committed to celebrating Ohio State's graduates at an appropriate time.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Commencement at The Ohio State University is a festive and joyous occasion at which family and guests are welcome to celebrate the accomplishments of the graduating class. The information contained on this website is designed to be beneficial to all those participating in or attending the commencement ceremony.

Take the Graduation Survey

The university administers a Graduation Survey to all graduating students (except full-time MBAs and PhDs who receive separate, national surveys) beginning three weeks prior to commencement. Students are encouraged to complete the survey as data are used throughout the university to improve the experiences of future Buckeyes. To take the survey, visit http://go.osu.edu/gradsurvey
