In the very unlikely event that Commencement must be moved due to inclement weather, it will be announced approximately 24 hours in advance via email and the College website. If extreme rain or wind is predicted, the ceremony will take place in the Graham Athletics Center, where seating is limited, rather than in Memorial Stadium.

Students who opt out of participating in Commencement will receive their diploma and personalized cover based on the preference indicated on their Commencement Participation Form, provided that they have not already received it.
