Commencement Ceremony Parking
Student & Family Parking
Parking will be available for students, family and all other visitors on campus on a first-come/first-served basis. Officers will direct traffic from both College entrances to the appropriate parking areas (Parking Lots D and E). Campus maps are available for your convenience.
Graduates should arrive at 4 p.m., one hour before the commencement ceremony, and go directly to the Instructional Center for the assembly of academic procession and robing. Family and friends should arrive by 4:30 p.m., at least 30 minutes before the commencement ceremony, to allow ample time for parking and seating arrangements.
All faculty and chorus members should park in Parking Lot F.
A designated handicapped area will be available in Parking Lot D. The area will be coned off, and signage will be posted. Shuttle golf carts will be available to transport anyone who needs assistance.
For those who would like to drop off a guest for the Commencement Ceremony, at the ramp between the Instructional Center building and Student Services building, please stop at the turnaround oval to drop-off the guest. Parking is not permitted in this area.
Parking During Inclement Weather
The commencement ceremony normally is held outdoors in the Plaza. However, if we have inclement weather, the ceremony may be moved to the Physical Education Center. As a result, the handicapped parking area would be moved to Parking Lot C. All other parking availability would remain the same.
Security Officers will be posted in the parking lots and throughout campus to direct visitors. In the handicapped parking area, shuttle golf carts will be available to transport anyone who needs assistance. Any request for security assistance, no matter how minor, can be made by using any of the blue emergency phones on campus by pressing the BLUE button.
Parking will be available on campus for all visitors on a first-come/first-served basis.
