Dear Oregon State Community Members,

We are pleased to announce that Oregon State University will hold its 153rd commencement ceremony in-person on Saturday, June 11, 2022, in Reser Stadium in Corvallis. The 21st commencement ceremony for OSU-Cascades will be held in-person on Sunday, June 12, 2022 in Bend.

All on-campus and Ecampus students graduating between summer 2021 and summer 2022 are invited to participate. Eligible 2022 graduates will receive an email to RSVP to their respective ceremony soon.

We plan to welcome graduates’ families and friends, and OSU community members to attend these in-person events. Our priority during these celebratory events is to contribute to a healthy environment for our graduates, guests, and our community. At this time, both the Corvallis and Bend commencement ceremonies are planned to align with recent changes in OSU’s vaccination program requirements. With both ceremonies taking place in outdoor settings, proof of vaccination or negative test will not be required. We will continue to monitor the risk of COVID-19 in the coming months and will communicate updates or new information via the university-wide commencement ceremony website and the OSU-Cascades commencement ceremony website.

Thank you for your continued resilience and enthusiasm as we prepare to celebrate our 2022 graduates.


Becky Johnson

Interim President
