Read about Ozarks' ongoing response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.


Commencement is the pinnacle of academic success — representing years of hard work, dedication and commitment.

Held twice a year, commencement is an opportunity for our graduates to share the excitement and importance of their academic accomplishments with classmates, family, and friends. It is also a time for the University’s Board of Trustees and campus community to pay special tribute to our graduates for the outstanding effort they have shown in earning their degree.

All University-sponsored events through the remainder of the semester have been canceled or postponed. However, no decision has been made regarding the status of the May 16 Commencement ceremony. We will provide you with updates in the very near future.
