Provided seating is limited for outside Commencement. Because of this we advise you to bring a folding chair or blanket in case all seating is taken. It is encouraged that guests arrive early. No tickets are required if Commencement is held outside, however tickets are required if the inclement weather plan is implemented (Please see Inclement Weather Plan for More information).
Please note: as you arrive to campus traffic will be directed to your right. Please follow the directions of the Security Officers who will be at the front entrance of the college. If you will be transporting a person who requires special accommodations, please notify Student Affairs before May 11th and you will be given a pass for one of the limited number of reserved spaces. This pass must be displayed on your dashboard the day of Commencement. It is very possible that there will not be enough reserved spaces. If this occurs, inform the Security Officer at the entrance bridge and arrangements will be made for you to drop off your passenger. If you have any questions about parking before May 11th, please call Student Affairs at 859-846-5390.
