General Parking and Seating

Parking Information

Family and guests are encouraged to arrive before 5:30 p.m. to better ensure a parking space. Parking will be available on the east and west campuses. Vehicular access to the main campus will become increasingly difficult as the parking lots become filled. Guests with handicapped permits should enter the North Entrance only. There is no access to handicapped parking from the South Entrance. For a complete list of parking sites and instructions, please see the Parking Information & Map link on the Commencement website (

General Seating

Admittance to the outdoor ceremony is by general admission. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, and no saving of seats will be allowed. Please inform your guests to follow the directives of the security staff and ushers. All persons must stay within the roped-off areas to allow the best visibility for everyone. Please do not block the view of others by standing on chairs or in the aisles.

In addition to the outdoor seating area, the College has arranged for a special live-viewing of the ceremony to be broadcast indoors in several campus locations. Please see Closed Circuit Viewing for further information.
