Inclement Weather Plan | Commencement
If there is severe weather forecasted for Commencement day, the ceremony will be moved indoors to Van Male Fieldhouse. If the forecast is for a light drizzle or occasional showers, we will keep the ceremony outside, so graduates should dress accordingly.
The guest passes issued to each student for this event are in the form of wristbands, which the students will pick up at Grad Fair on Wednesday, April 12, 2023. Any guest entering Van Male for the Commencement ceremony must be wearing their guest pass at all times – or they will be asked to stream from the Campus Center Ballroom.
For guests who are unable to attend in person or choosing to live-stream the ceremony, the link will be made available on our commencement website (and emailed out to students prior to the ceremony).
