Commencement at Coastal Carolina University is an important event for you, your family and friends, as well as the faculty and staff. The ceremony brings together all involved to celebrate your achievements. Graduates are encouraged to remember that this is a time when the graduating class and the University are being observed by our most important public: family, friends, and colleagues. As a graduating student, you are celebrating the successful conclusion of earning your degree. Commencement is a formal celebration of academic accomplishments. It is a ceremony steeped in academic ritual and the traditions of the University complete with procession, academic regalia and other elements of pageantry. No one except the graduate can ensure that the celebration will be safe, dignified and memorable. 

To ensure a quick and safe exit, graduates are urged to make arrangements before Commencement to meet family and friends after the ceremony at a designated location.
