Commencement is a time to celebrate and enjoy your accomplishments. However, it is, also, ceremonial. You are asked to honor the spirit of this important occasion by conducting yourself in a manner that is respectful of your guests, the guests of others, your fellow graduates, and you. Graduates are expected to honor the dignity associated with commencement and maintain an appropriate measure of decorum during the ceremony.


Graduates shall refrain from unsafe and/or disruptive behavior, which includes but is not limited to, noisemakers or other loud devices, taking selfies while on the Commencement platform, pranks, dancing of any kind, stepping, stomping, hopping, chanting and/or vocal or visual disruptions. Graduates shall proceed across the stage in a measured, safe, and professional manner. The time to celebrate more exuberantly is after the ceremony has concluded and all graduates have exited the facility.




Doors at Steelman Field House will open to guests at 9:00 a.m. for the 10:00 a.m. ceremony.


The NCAA Clear Bag Policy remains in place for any event held in an athletic facility, including Commencement.

One photo will be mailed to each graduate free of charge. These will be mailed with diploma certificates at the end of February or the first of March for December graduates. There will be a photo station located by the bell at Weevil Pond.


Parking will be available in lots around the campus. Accessible parking is available at Steelman Field House. Golf cart transportation to Steelman Field House will be provided to campus guests.
