What if it rains?

Indoor Commencement tickets

It is the University's strong preference to hold the Commencement Ceremony outdoors as scheduled in order to accommodate as many family members and guests as possible. However, in the event of severe inclement weather, the Commencement ceremony will be moved indoors and will require tickets for entry.
