Etiquette

Commencement Etiquette and Common Courtesy

The conferring of an academic degree is a tradition that dates back more than 600 years and is regarded as an important rite of passage for students and their families. Some students will be the first in their families to achieve a college degree. While commencement is a time for celebration, please remember this long and respected tradition and approach the ceremony with proper decorum and respect.

With this in mind, graduating students are required to remain seated until all graduates have been given their well-deserved recognition and the ceremony ends.

Again, graduates will not be allowed to leave the ceremony early, so please use the restrooms before the program begins.
