Graduates and up to four of their guests may arrive on campus up to 30 minutes prior to their time slot. Once you arrive, head to the Alumni Athletics & Convocation Center, on the Bill Greehey Arena side, to check in. Do not enter the arena at that time unless directed to do so. After checking in, you will receive a text alert letting you know when it is time to walk the stage. When you receive the text, head back to the check-in station and someone will assist you into the arena lobby. 

Once inside the lobby, you’ll be directed to cross the stage and your guests will be directed to an area in front of the stage. As you cross the stage, your family may take photos. Once you are done crossing, you will exit back into the lobby to pick up your diploma and Commencement program.

Graduates and guests may not wait inside the lobby or arena unless directed to do so. Masks must be worn at all times and you and your group must practice social distancing when inside the arena.
