Congratulation, Graduates! We know you're ready to take on the world!
ODU Graduation has two parts and we hope you will join us for both.
Baccalaureate takes place as a Mass giving thanks for the blessings of our graduates and of prayers for their continued success in life.
Commencement is the official ceremony where graduates receive their diplomas.
A live feed of the ceremony will be streamed on TV's in the Griffin Student Center and Alumni Hall Community Room, and you can also watch online.
All graduates must apply to Graduate through ODU Online and pay a $150 graduation fee. The deadline is October 31, 2014.
Click here to RSVP. The deadline is December 1, 2014. Please RSVP whether you plan to attend or not.
All graduates must attend rehearsal in order to participate in the ceremony. The rehearsal will be followed by a reception hosted by ODU's Alumni Association.
Baccalaureate will be held the morning of Commencement. This is optional but we encourage all graduates and their families to attend.
