Doors open for Online Undergraduate and Graduate Studies guests at 5:00 pm on Friday, Dec. 17th and for Traditional Undergraduate guests at 9:00 am on Saturday, Dec. 18th.
No tickets are required, but seating is limited. The ceremony customarily lasts about 90 minutes.
Overflow seating with live video viewing access will be provided as needed.
We want you to celebrate your graduate, but we don't want your celebration to obscure or distract from the recognition of other graduates. Therefore, please refrain from using air horns, other noise makers, and throwing confetti or other objects in celelebration during Commencement in the Darling Pavilion.

Strollers are not allowed in the commencement venue due to space restrictions and fire regulations. A designated parking area for strollers will be available outside the venue. If possible, we recommend leaving strollers at home or in the car.
We welcome our guests who use wheelchairs and/or walkers. Accessible seating is available at the ceremony. Please contact Sandy Printy ([email protected]) for reserved seating.
