all graduates participating in the winter 2020 commencement exercises are reminded to confirm their participation by the november 2nd deadline. confirmation of participation allows the university to ensure that all measures are in place to provide our graduates and their guests a celebratory in-person commencement within the confines and/or restrictions imposed due to covid-19. one safety measure will be the issuance of guest tickets per confirmed graduate participant. only guests with a ticket will gain entrance into the stadium. all ceremonies will continue to be live streamed so that loved ones not in attendance may observe the ceremonies in “real time.”
