Commencement will be held May 21 through May 24 outside at the Track and Field, rain or shine. Graduates and guests can get acquainted beforehand with what to expect at the ceremonies, how to get to campus for the festivities, and whom to contact for additional information. Accommodations for individuals with disabilities are available upon request.

As a reminder, umbrellas are not permitted on the Track and Field, but in the event of rain, ponchos are encouraged and will be available for purchase. There will be a live simulcast in the Pyramid for those looking to sit inside. This is also a good alternative for those who don't have a ticket.
