Assembly of Graduates

Group of faculty

Graduates will be directed by Commencement staff to the line-up and sign-in area at the south end of the Quad, near the Macintosh Building. You must arrive at the assembly area 60 minutes before the start of your ceremony to fill out your Yellow Name Card. You will keep this card until you cross the stage as this is how the name readers will announce you are crossing the stage.

A rehearsal for graduates is not conducted. You will receive directions from Commencement officials who have planned and rehearsed. Please give them your attention for instructions.

You will line up by major, in random order. You may sit next to whomever you choose. You will fill out a card with your name, degree, and address. This information will be used on stage to announce your name and by the photographer to send your photos.
