How to RSVP for the Commencement Ceremonies 

Faculty are asked to RSVP their attendance for the commencement ceremonies via the Faculty Attendance webform so we may ensure that an appropriate number of seats are reserved. 


What to Wear

Faculty taking part in the commencement processional must wear their academic regalia. Academic regalia is available for rent through the bookstore via Oak Hall. The Oak Hall website will remain active until Friday, April 1. After April 1, please contact the bookstore assistant manager Adrienne Davis. If you would like to custom order regalia, please contact Adrienne Davis. The last day for ordering custom regalia is Friday, March 25. You will receive a 10% discount.

The academic ceremonies code suggests that women wear their caps during all of the commencement ceremonies; men should remove their caps during the National Anthem. Please wear medallions and keys that show membership in honor societies.

Where to Go 

Please arrive at the Jerry Richardson Stadium Gate 1 at least one hour prior to the ceremony. Student Marshals will direct you to the Academic Center located in the Judy Rose Center.


Leave all bags and umbrellas in your car. Security checks with metal detectors will be conducted at entry points. Allow for extra time.
