Do my guests need tickets?
Tickets are not needed for our ceremony. However, due to space limitations at Wilson Plaza, we are allowing up to four guests per graduate. Aside from a roped-off section for our VIP guests, grads and dignitaries, all seating is general admission and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Saving seats will be allowed as space permits.
Where do I park?
When do I need to be at the Anderson complex?
Graduates need to be at the Anderson complex in their full regalia no later than 2:15 p.m. Do not arrive at the Anderson complex with your regalia still wrapped in the Graduation Etc. package. Take a steam iron to it at home and then carefully get dressed in it when you exit your vehicle at campus.
Where should I line up for the ceremony?
At 3:15 p.m., make your way down the main steps to the south walk (between Anderson and Kaufman) to get lined up for the processional. EMBA students will line up in front in two flanks on both the Anderson and Kaufman sides. FTMBA students will stand in the line closest to the Anderson complex behind one flank of EMBAs. FEMBA students will be across the aisle on the Kaufman side, again behind a flank of EMBAs. Don’t get in the wrong line!

When will I receive my diploma?
The registrar's office will mail out diploma information approximately six weeks after the end of your degree term (winter graduates will receive their information in June; spring graduates will receive their information in August). Diplomas can be picked up in person at the registrar's office approximately three months after you graduate (winter graduates can pick up their diploma in June; spring graduates can pick up their diploma in September/October). If you would like your diploma to be mailed to you, go to the Graduation and Diploma website and download and print out the form. Fill in the required information (including your payment preference) and send it to the address on the form.
