Commencement is our time to honor you and your accomplishments and your time to celebrate all that you have achieved with your family and friends.

Please mark your calendars for Commencement for the Class of 2020 on Saturday, May 1, 2021, and for the Class of 2021 on Sunday, May 2, 2021.

More specific information will be coming out soon. It is Otterbein’s goal to celebrate your graduation and offer you the safest commencement experience possible. And of course, Otterbein will continue to follow guidelines from Franklin County Public Health, the Ohio Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Your commencement will be a time to celebrate. Please plan to join us on either May 1 or 2 so we may celebrate together.
