A decision was made by University officials to relocate the ceremony on Friday afternoon.

Graduates should sit with their families and be seated on The Pavilion floor. Once the floor seating is filled, graduates and their families will be allowed to sit in the remaining available seating in the arena.

With the Commencement ceremony relocated, all other school or college commencement ceremonies throughout the day will also take place at the rain locations. Those locations and times can be viewed here.
