Ticket Distribution-Seniors must pick up their own graduation tickets (no parents please) on campus Friday, May 24, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 Noon. The exact location will be announced at a later date. Only seniors who have passed three of five end-of-course exams and all courses required for graduation may participate in the commencement exercises. Receipt of tickets does not guarantee participation since grades for all exams will not have been posted at the time of distribution. Students must present a photo I.D. and sign for receipt. *Graduation tickets not picked up by Thursday, May 30 will be forfeited and redistributed.

Seating Assignments – Please find your graduation seating assignment before next Thursday’s mandatory rehearsal! Seating assignments are posted on the windows in the B1-B2 breezeway and the gym lobby.
