Commencement Tickets and Seating
Commencement is on May 7, 2016 and begins at 1 p.m. Please note that the Processional begins at 12:45 p.m.—all guests must be seated by 12:30 p.m.
The ceremony generally lasts about two hours and is held on the Campus Quadrangle, rain or shine. In the case of severe weather, before or during the ceremony, annoucements about a delay or change in location will be made.
Seating is unlimited and tickets are NOT required if the ceremony is held outdoors on the Campus Quadrangle.
If the ceremony is held indoors (Goodrich Chapel), Tickets will be required for any family members or friends who will be attending Commencement.
Each student will receive six tickets via their campus mailbox. Two tickets will be for Goodrich Chapel and Four for auxilary viewing in Kresge gymnasium.
Why do we have to have tickets if Commencement is held inside?
The College must abide by the fire code regulations for the number of people allowed in Goodrich Chapel. Therefore, tickets are necessary if the ceremony is held indoors.
We do not have replacement tickets for lost tickets.

Handicapped-accessible parking and special seating is available.
A Sign Language interpreter will be located near the Commencement platform.
