Celebrating the achievements of your Bear grad

We are excited to have you on campus for commencement! Thank you for helping celebrate our graduates and for all the support you have given them along the way.

Looking for that special gift for your graduate?  Pre-order custom imprinted apparel or a bouquet of flowers for the #BearGrad in your life.  Items may be picked up right before the ceremony on December 17 and will be located inside the main doors of the arena.  Shop for apparel and flowers now.

Seating

Special, non-reserved seating areas are available for guests with permanent or temporary disabilities. No stairways are encountered. Guests in wheelchairs as well as those who are unable to climb stairs are permitted in these areas.

Due to space limitations, we ask that only one other family member be seated with the guest in the special areas. To seek assistance in locating this seating, you may see one of the ushers located at the entrances the day of the ceremony.

Special accommodations

The university must have at least two week’s notice of any disability accommodation (other than seating) in order to serve the needs identified. Submit your request to commencement chair Terry Weber.
