Commencement 2018 at Grace College & Theological Seminary is Saturday, May 12 at 9 a.m. in the Manahan Orthopaedic Captial Center. Doors open to family and friends of the graduates at 8 a.m. Tickets are required. Graduates are expected to report to the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center at 8 a.m. to line up for the processional.
Guests with tickets can enter the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center (MOCC) on Commencement Saturday. Graduates do not need tickets. Only graduates can request tickets for their guests. Graduates request tickets from February 2, 2018 through March 15, 2018. Graduates may request 4 tickets and request to be placed on a waiting list for the potential of additional tickets. All tickets will be distributed to graduates with their cap and gown at the end of March or in early April. After this time, there will be no more tickets to distribute for Commencement.
Tickets allow entrance into the MOCC but do not guarantee a specific seat assignment. All guests of any age, except children age 2 and younger, are expected to have a ticket for entry to the MOCC. Tickets are free of charge.
Guests who arrive to campus without a ticket may watch the Commencement ceremony in our overflow location on-campus, Alpha Dining Commons. Some light morning refreshments will be available there for guests as they watch Commencement on the indoor monitors. Guests in this overflow space can re-connect with their graduates outside the MOCC after the Recessional as all the graduates spill out onto the lawn for pictures.
Still need additional tickets? Encourage your graduate to utilize the Commencement Ticket Exchange Board on the Commencement Portal site for graduates or to network with fellow graduates via other social media sites.
