Graduation 2019

  • Red Oak High School

    • The decision for a graduation date has been delayed because of the use of the UTA College Park Center by the WNBA Wings team at the same facility.
    • We, along with several other schools, are waiting for the team schedule before booking of graduation dates can take place.
    • We should have a set date by the end of January 2019.



    College Park Center

    University of Texas at Arlington 
    600 S. Center Street
    Arlington, TX 76017-0192



    Cap & Gown:

    The cap and gown for graduation have changed slightly. Seniors that planned to use an older siblings' cap or gown will need to obtain the updated ones. Seniors can exchange their gowns for new ones (free of charge). Seniors will need to purchase their cap and tassel from Josten's.

    Parking & Driving Directions:

    Parking garages and certain lots charge a parking fee. Be prepared to pay up to $15.00 per vehicle. There may be some free parking, but be prepared just in case. This came as a surprise to some guests last year and held up the line of traffic. Guests are advised to plan for possible traffic delays in the Arlington area. Friday night is very busy in this area, so allow plenty of time. Specific information about the UTA College Park Center may be found at

    Live Web Streaming Available:

    If you have friends or family who cannot travel to UTA, they may watch the entire ceremony live on the Red Oak ISD website or Red Oak High School website from the comfort of their homes.
