Physical Distancing & Face Coverings

To accommodate physical distancing and other public health guidelines, modifications to the traditional ceremony are necessary. These include, but are not limited to:

  • No student processional; students will be seated as they arrive
  • Updated CDC recommendations.
  • Students will be individually recognized at the ceremony and will have their picture taken as they cross the stage. Handshakes with the President, Provost, and Dean will take place. If students wish to refrain from shaking hands, students can place their hand over their heart to signal a desire to refrain from the handshake or extend an offer for a fist bump.

Guest Ticket Guidelines

  • No Tickets will be issued or required for entrance to the Commencement Ceremonies. All seating will be general admission.
