Graduates should arrive with regalia, no later than one (1) hour prior to their ceremony time to check-in at the Softball Field. Please make sure to account for traffic. Graduate drop off is located at the Campus Way roundabout. Lot L (by the Clarke Field House) will be closed and barricaded for pedestrian safety.
Once you check-in, you will receive your electronic reader card (if you have applied to graduate for the current acadmic term). You will be responsible for your reader card until your name is called on stage. It is advised to take a picture of the code in the event you lose your card from the time you check-in until your name is called.
If you did not apply to gradaute or did not apply to graduate for the current academic term, please check-in under the sign "No Reader Card", where Commencement Staff will register you so that you can obtain an electronic reader card. Please note that if you are not a graduate of the current academic term, you will not be noted with Latin Honors (if applicable).
After checking in, Graduates will be asked to line up behind the A-Frame noting their major on the Softball Field. During this time, you will have the opportunity to take pictures with your cohort and Crash!
Please note that the ceremonies will start on time. If you are running late, please find a Commencement Ambassador ( blue polo) to assist you to the graduate seating area.
