Grad Fair

Dress Code
Commencement is a formal ceremony. Proper attire and behavior are expected. Comfortable, business casual clothing is recommended for graduates. We also recommend graduates wear shoes and clothing that are visible under their gown in dark colors that complement the commencement gown. Pants should also be below the length of gown. Shorts, sneakers, and flip flops are not permitted.

Seating Area
All graduates will be seated on the floor. Graduates are seated with their classmates according to school or college and degree level. Graduates are not seated alphabetically or by specific degrees. All graduates will be displayed on the video screens as they receive the degrees on stage. Children are not permitted in the graduate seating area, so graduates cannot have their children sit with them nor are children allowed on the gradation stage.
