Campus Parking Map


Tickets are not required for the commencement ceremonies; however, each graduate is allowed up to seven (7) guests due to limited seating. We recommend arriving at least one hour before the ceremony begins to find parking and your seats.


Guests are welcome to take photos throughout the ceremony; however, the aisles must be kept clear. Professional photos are taken of each graduate with their diploma after they cross the stage. A group/family photo opportunity will be available in the foyer following the ceremonies.

Accessibility Accommodations


Graduating students who have special requests, such as assistance walking the stage or participating in a different ceremony, should contact the commencement team at


The commencement team has ensured that there are a number of accommodations for students and guests with physical limitations or disabilities. Ample accessible parking is available in our parking lots and there is a generous amount of accessible seating within the venue, first come first served. Ushers are available to escort guests to their seats.

Real-time captioning is also provided for both ceremonies to accommodate those who are hard-of-hearing.
