The ceremony will have open captioning in the HTC Center. A live streaming transcription of the audio portion of the ceremony will be displayed on the two larger screens flanking the main stage for guests. Seats will be reserved in section 105, inside the HTC Center, for guests needing this service.

Accessible Seating

Accessible seating is available in the first row of each bleacher section, which is designated by white and blue tape. Due to high demand, patrons using accessible seating may have one companion accompany them in the accessible seating areas. As space permits, families and friends are welcomed to sit near or behind individuals using accessible seating. However, it is important to note that accessible seating areas, like all commencement seating, are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Event staff will be on hand the day of commencement to assist.
