2014 Spring Commencement Ceremony Schedule

Access to Ceremony Venues

Due to multiple ceremonies being held in the same venue, it is recommended that guests not arrive more than one hour in advance of a scheduled ceremony to avoid traffic and parking delays or long wait times for building entry.  Every effort will be made to have doors open approximately one hour prior to all college or departmental ceremonies.  Overcrowding is not a concern in the larger venues of Lane Stadium, Cassell Coliseum, and Burruss Hall Auditorium.

Tickets Are Not Required for Commencement Ceremonies

Although tickets are not required for Commencement ceremonies, and there is no limit to the number of guests you may bring, there will be limited seating in the smaller venues based on the number of students participating.   We ask that you consider limiting your guests for the college and departmental ceremonies to immediate family.
