• Alternate Ceremony Site

    Information for ALL Students:

    The decision has been made to move the 2019 Commencement ceremony inside Hutton Arena. The Commencement committee considered the anticipated forecast for Saturday and decided this is the best option.

    As always the safety and comfort of our graduates and guests is our highest priority.

    Information for Bachelor's (Undergraduate) Students:

    Each graduate is allowed three tickets due to the capacity of Hutton Arena. Additionally there will be a pool of tickets available for distribution in the Bush Center lobby beginning at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday on a first come, first serve basis. Each graduate is eligible to get four additional tickets.

    Information for Master's and Doctorate (Graduate) Students:

    No tickets are required for the alternate graduate ceremony site in Hutton Arena.


    If family members or guests do not have tickets for the Undergraduate ceremony or do not wish to sit in Hutton Arena, the ceremonies can be viewed in the following locations:

    • Anderson Center (first floor)
    • Gidden Alumni Learning Center (room 100E)
    • Bush Center Ballroom

    The live stream of the ceremony is aired in high definition format and the view is exceptional!  We encourage families with elderly guests or small children to take advantage of the simulcast locations given the space constraints of Hutton Arena.
