Graduates, their families and friends are urged to arrive in sufficient time for the prompt 9 a.m. start of the program and to expect traffic congestion in the area. Campus parking is free on graduation day. Due to flood damage, only two elevators are operational (closest to the arena). Elderly or disabled guests should plan accordingly. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis; no tickets will be issued. Doors to the arena will open at 8 a.m., and will close once the arena has reached capacity due to fire regulations. Those arriving after the doors have been closed will be directed to Les Murakami Stadium where the ceremony will be broadcast via live feed.

No balloons are allowed inside the Stan Sheriff Center. Graduates, their families, and well wishers will exit the Stan Sheriff Center and meet on the field of Les Murakami Stadium (for last names beginning in letters A- M), and the Soccer Field (for N-Z) for post-commencement celebrations.
