Seating at commencement, located in the Bernard G. Johnson Coliseum, is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Reservations are NOT available for seating. Please note that friends and family will NOT be allowed to "save seats" prior to the commencement ceremony inside the coliseum.

Once the coliseum reaches capacity, additional seating will be provided in the Lowman Student Center Theatre where live video feed will ensure that each guest will see their special graduate cross the stage. There are restrooms and a baby changing station located on the concourse of the coliseum, as well as in the nearby Teacher Education Center.

Arrangements have been made for Guests with Disabilities.
