Valuables: We will not be responsible for your valuables. Leave them with family or friends. Also, please turn off your cell phones.

Distractions: Distractions can make a graduation ceremony unpleasant. Please remind family and friends to keep children and babies as quiet as possible and not to enter and exit the Auditorium during the ceremonies.

Ceremony: Each graduate will be assigned a position for the processional and will be seated accordingly. The Marshals will seat graduates in the reserved area of the Auditorium. During the processional, please be sensitive to good posture, hold your head high, and keep your eyes straight ahead. When your name is called, stand at the platform for your degree to be announced and then move to the diploma table to shake hands with the President with your right hand and accept your diploma with your left. Follow the line of march back to your seat and immediately sit down. 

Diplomas: During the ceremonies you will receive an empty diploma cover. Immediately after the ceremonies are over, come directly to Seminar A to pick up your diploma insert. If you have already received your diploma or did not order one, please return the diploma cover.

Special Needs: To make arrangements for yourself and/or your family member with disabilities who will attend the ceremony, contact Alfreda Lindsay at 828-395-1732. Accessible seating for family members is on a first-come-first-served basis.
