Additional Information

You asked. We answered. To enhance your commencement experience, faculty will now be seated at the front of the arena, flanking graduates in the first sections on both sides. This seating position will improve graduate and faculty visibility and interaction.

Rental regalia orders can be picked up at the Jostens table near the student check-in station. Regalia will be returned to a Jostens representative as you exit the arena following the second ceremony.

Be in the faculty-designated assembly area, dressed and ready to walk by:

  • 9:30 a.m. for the 10 a.m. ceremony
  • 2:30 p.m. for the 3 p.m. ceremony
