There is no rehearsal in advance of this event. Your punctual attendance in the Medical Arts Building is required so that you and your fellow graduates can prepare and practice for the actual graduation ceremony. Do not be late!

Family and Guests should proceed directly to the athletic field and be seated by 9:30 a.m.

Graduation is a formal occasion. Graduates should wear dark shoes, dresses or appropriate suits with their caps and gowns. Note: As the ceremony takes place on the athletic field, it is suggested that graduates refrain from wearing high heel shoes.

Graduates typically wear tassels on the right front side before degrees are conferred.

Graduation stoles are permitted only for Phi Theta Kappa members. No other stoles are permitted.

NOTE: Diploma covers, not actual diplomas, are given out during the graduation ceremony. Graduates will be receiving diplomas by the end of the next semester. Notifications will be sent to students that their diplomas are ready for pick up.
