Steps to Graduate

Getting In/Admission to the Ceremony

There are no tickets to the event. Admission for students and all guests is FREE.

Parking in the Arena lots is FREE.

Accommodations

Wheelchair accessibility and other mobility assistance will be available via a chair lift or ramp for participating in the ceremony. Students needing assistance in walking or staying off their feet for an extended period of time are encouraged to let staff know when they check in.

Wheelchair seating for guests is available all throughout the main concourse, but the best seats seem to be above sections 112, 124 and 125.

Sign language interpreters will be positioned near the front of the stage. Individuals needing this service are encouraged to sit in section 105.

The main portions of the ceremony will be close captioned on a large screen above the stage.

Diplomas

Student participants do not receive their degree/certificate during the ceremony, but rather a diploma cover. Diplomas are sent out after the completion of the spring quarter so the college can verify students successfully complete their spring classes and have all of the necessary credits for their degrees. This is the standard practice for colleges around the country.
