Day of the Ceremony
There is no rehearsal prior to the ceremony. Please assemble dressed in cap and gown at the Fellowship Hall at least one hour before your ceremony. At that time you will be given a card with your name printed on it. Keep this with you and hand it to the narrator when you approach the stage. Your name will be announced as you walk across the stage. You must return to your seat and remain seated until all graduates have marched across the stage; then stand until faculty leaves the sanctuary.
If you require special accommodations for the ceremony (wheelchair access, interpreter, etc.) please contact Access Services by calling 352-854-2322, ext. 1580.
