Welcome back, Spring and Summer 2020 graduates! The University is excited to honor the Spring and Summer Class of 2020 at an in-person commencement ceremony on Saturday, Dec. 12, at 1 p.m., inside Brooks Stadium. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will take place on Monday, Dec. 14, at 1 p.m., inside Brooks Stadium.
Graduates are to enter Brooks Stadium using the Gate 1 entrance, and are to arrive no later than one hour prior to the start of the ceremony. Please arrive dressed in your regalia as time will be limited. The University will be enforcing the Clear Bag Policy, so please plan accordingly. Graduates and guests will be asked to wear face coverings at all times. Valuables/purses should not be brought with you as there is no secure storage available. Upon arrival, each graduate will have an assigned seat on the field. Therefore, graduates planning to walk in the ceremony are required to claim a graduate ticket regardless if they plan to have guests in attendance.
Please note that the ceremony will take place on Benton Field inside Brooks Stadium. In order to protect the turf field and ensure the safety of graduates, high/stiletto heels will not be allowed on the field. 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 outside of Brooks Stadium.
