Ohio Northern University Commencement

Accommodations Near Campus


Following Gov. DeWine's directives and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance regarding the limiting of large group gatherings and events to help limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, ONU is postponing spring commencements scheduled in May for all undergraduate, graduate and law graduates. Because commencement is one of our most important and cherished activities, the University is fully committed to celebrating with our graduates and their families in person on the ONU campus at the appropriate time. We hope to announce when commencement will be rescheduled in the near future; however it is premature to select a date at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope to communicate decisions as soon as possible. On Mother’s Day, May 10, we will hold a brief “virtual conferral of degrees event" for all of our undergraduate, graduate and law students. In addition, diplomas will be sent via U.S. Mail to all graduates in early June. More information regarding the virtual conferral of degrees event, regalia purchases, hotel information and other details about the rescheduled commencement will be published when that information is available.
