Decorum & Protocol
All graduates are required to stay for the entire ceremony.
Please plan for an approximate two (2) ​hour program.

The Commencement ceremony is a dignified event. Decorum and courtesy are very important for graduates and guests.
  • All graduates must remain seated until the end of the ceremony.
  • Turn cell phones to silent for the ceremony.
  • Wear cap throughout entire ceremony.
  • No air horns, balloons, bubbles, beach balls, or similar items are allowed in the ceremony. The use of noisemakers may be intended to show one person’s pride in a graduate, but it can also ruin the chance for another family to hear the name of their graduate announced.
  • No children allowed to be seated with graduates.
  • No unsupervised children in the guest seating area.
  • Leave personal belongings with guests before proceeding to check-in.
Webcast of the Ceremony
