May 2020 Graduation Postponed

April 2, 2020 – Odessa College has made the difficult decision to postpone May graduation ceremonies until further notice. “The college will continue to confer degrees and certificates to transfer and career ready students,” President Gregory Williams said. “Odessa College faculty and staff have prepared our graduates to be tomorrow’s teachers, first responders, scientists, innovators and leaders. Our graduates will give a fresh voice to culture, ethics and policy that will shape our communities and our future. They will accomplish these things and much more because our work continues.”

“Plans are underway to mail diplomas and make transcripts available to all graduates once the spring term is complete,” Cara Hogan, Odessa College Registrar, said. “We anticipate sending diplomas to graduates and making updated transcripts available in mid-June. It is essential that graduates update their mailing address and phone number to ensure timely receipt of communication.”  Prospective graduates are encouraged to confirm their intent to graduate with the Records Office as soon as possible.  Students should  contact the Records Office at with questions or for additional information.

Odessa College is committed to having an in-person celebration when traveling and large group events are considered safe. Plans for the postponed graduation will not be confirmed until the college and the community understand more about the advance of the COVID-19 pandemic.
