PREPARING FOR COMMENCEMENT
Can I bring guests? Are Tickets Required?
Graduating students are welcome to invite as many guests as they would like for both the Celebration Days and the Commencement Ceremony. While guests to the Law Campus Celebration Days are unlimited, we can only guarantee that four guests per graduate will be able to have a chair under the tent. There are no seating limits for guests at the Sunday, May 21, Commencement Ceremony on Main Campus’ Healy Lawn.
