How to: Follow Covid-19 Protocol
Masks will be required for everyone entering the building. It is imperative that you bring your own masks to wear as our supply available for the ceremony is limited. Please be sure that your mask is appropriate and does not have any vulgar, disrespectful, or political content. Plain or patterned masks with no words are preferred.
Graduates and guests will have their temperatures taken upon arrival. If you or your guests' temperature is below 100.3, then a wrist band will be issued and you will be allowed to stay. If you or your guests' temperature is over 100.3, you will be asked to wait 15 minutes and then have your temperature taken again. If it is still above the threshold you or your guest will not be allowed to stay for the Commencement ceremony to ensure the safety and well-being of our other guests and graduates.
