Welcome Family and Friends!

We’re excited for you to join us during your graduate’s special day. We have provided you with some information to help plan your day;

Ceremony Dates and Times

Arrival Time/Day of Convocation

Convocation ceremonies take place in the gymnasium (room 2430). The gymnasium doors will open approximately one hour prior to the start of the ceremonies. To allow all graduates to have family and friends attend their special day, each graduate has been asked to limit their guests to three. Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. In the event we reach capacity, the amphitheatre (room 2226) will available to watch the ceremony via webcast for guests and our staff will assist guests getting into the gym to see their graduate cross the stage.

The convocation ceremony approximately takes two hours. We ask that guests and graduates remain in the gymnasium for the entire ceremony, out of courtesy to all graduates. Guests requiring assistance can signal one of our convocation staff for assistance.

Quiet rooms are available for guests requiring assistance.


Parking is Free. Parking staff and signage will direct you to a lot with parking availability.
