ADMISSION IS BY TICKET ONLY-All attendees require a ticket this includes infants.
Tickets will be distributed the week of May 30. Tickets guarantee admission to the ceremony, but not necessarily a seat.
Graduation will be live streamed. We encourage those who cannot be in the sun and heat for long periods of time (young children and the elderly) to watch the live stream.
Gates open at 4:00 pm. The ceremony will begin at 6:00 pm on Thursday, June 1st. The ceremony lasts about 2 hours and temperatures can be hot that time of year. We strongly discourage families bringing infants and young children. Strollers will not be allowed. If you do bring infants and young children, they also require a ticket for admission.
Seniors will receive six (6) complimentary tickets and may purchase two (2) additional tickets while supplies last. Seniors may purchase those two (2) additional tickets after the graduation rehearsal only. CASH ONLY = $10 per ticket. Seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, and you will not be allowed to save seats. Arrive early for the best seating.
Important Commencement Reminders
Seniors will not be allowed to bring cell phones, cameras, keys, balloons, flowers, leis or other loose items on the field during the commencement ceremony. It’s best to leave these items in your car or with your parents prior to reporting to the gym.
Seniors may not alter/decorate cap or gown.
Balloons and umbrellas are not allowed in the stadium during the ceremony because they have a tendency to block the vision of other guests. All umbrellas brought into the stadium must be lowered before the start of the ceremony.
Handicapped parking and seating is available, but limited. Arrive early for best parking and seating.
Stadium opens at 4:00 pm for families. Guest may begin lining up at 3pm.
Students may wear only flat shoes during the commencement ceremony.
No one will be allowed on the track and field following the ceremony. Parents and guests can meet their graduates outside the stadium in the MPR plaza or the Main Quad.
