To honor the accomplishments of more than 600 graduates in the Class of 2020 during this global pandemic, the virtual commencement will be the first celebration in recognizing our graduates. See Virtual Commencement Instructions.

Although the University understands some graduates and their friends and families may not have the opportunity to return to campus after graduation, it has also committed to having students and their families participate in an in-person commencement celebration when city, state, and federal public health guidelines allow. Possible dates and activities for our in-person ceremony are currently being explored, and details will be forthcoming as more information about the spread of COVID0-19 becomes known.

A message from our Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Richard Beck


RSU Alma Mater

Rise above the Claremore valley 
Camelot to view,
Stands our gracious alma mater
Thrusting t’ward the blue.

Lift the chorus, speed it onward
For the Red and Blue,
Hail to thee our alma mater
Hail to R-S-U!
