Graduate and Guest Ceremony Etiquette

A graduation ceremony should be a respectful event for all those in attendance. Please keep the following ceremony guidelines in mind:

  • Graduates will not be permitted to leave until the conclusion of the ceremony.
  • Please keep talking and movement during the ceremony to a minimum so that all graduate's and their families can hear their name being called.
  • Please leave all personal belongings (purses, bags, etc.) with your guests, as graduates will not be permitted to bring in anything other than their cap & gown.
  • Food and drinks will not be permitted in the auditorium.

Commencement Photos

Graduates will have their pictures taken by Flash Photography at the ceremony. Students and their families will have the opportunity to purchase the photographs. The photographer will contact the student directly via the information provided by the student to the graduation department.


All commencement participants will receive a commemorative diploma cover during the ceremony. Diplomas will be mailed from the System Office (not individual campuses) after requirements are certified. Mailings will occur mid-June for May graduates and mid-September for summer graduates.
