Tickets required for graduation

Graduation is just around the corner. For those of you who have not petitioned to graduate, the deadline is approaching. May 6, the sixth week of spring term, is the final deadline for petitioning. Petitions will be accepted after that date but there will be no guarantee that the student will be put into the commencement program.

There are a couple changes to the ceremonies this year. The ceremony for GED/adult high school graduation is June 9, at 7 p.m. It is now in the Gregory Forum to accommodate the decreasing number of GED graduates. The commencement ceremony is June 10, at 7 p.m. in the Randall Gym.

Tickets will now be provided to students for friends and family members to attend the commencement ceremony. The registration for this ceremony will begin the first week of spring term and the deadline is May 13. The planning committee is still figuring out how many people can fit in the Randall Gym but has said they estimate that each student will have three tickets. To be guaranteed these tickets, students must register by May 13. Overflow seating for those who have more than three guests will be in the McLoughlin Auditorium, Gregory Forum and the Osterman Theatre.

The website for the graduation ceremony will be up and running when registration opens. Students will then receive emails with more information regarding graduation.
