Share in the celebration
As the guest of a graduate, we are honored to have you celebrate commencement with us. To ensure that you have the best experience possible, we've included a few quick tips here, for your convenience. There are no restrictions on the number of guests. Guest seating is open (no reserved seats). No tickets are required.
1. Find your ceremony
Check the commencement schedule to find the date and time of your graduate’s ceremony and reception.
2. Arrive early
Parking and seating will get crowded as it gets close to the beginning of the ceremony. Early arrival will ensure you don’t get stuck in traffic and that you'll have a better choice of seats. Doors will open 90 minutes before the commencement ceremony.
Parking will be available at multiple locations across campus with free shuttle buses to take attendees to the ceremony. If you plan to attend a reception on campus, we recommend that you park near the building where your graduate's reception will be held and take the shuttle to the ceremony.
Plan ahead with our parking and traffic map.
4. Meet your party outside the Skydome
Please meet your graduate outside of the Skdyome. Graduates will participate in a formal recessional leading the graduates outside of the Skdyome. Graduates and families will not be allowed on the Skydome floor following the ceremony.
