Day of Graduation
Faculty & Staff Parking

With so many family and friends attending Commencement, we ask that faculty and staff park in lots that will be designated by Public Safety on the day of the event.

Academic Regalia
Those wearing academic costumes always wear their caps in academic processions and during the ceremony of conferring degrees. Men may remove caps during prayer, the playing of the national anthem and the alma mater, and at other specified times; e.g., during the baccalaureate sermon or the commencement address. It is traditional that all such actions be done in unison.

If a person holds more than one academic degree, he or she may wear only one hood at a time. The hood worn should be appropriate to the gown.

Commencement Tickets
Faculty participating in the Commencement Ceremony will not be required to have a ticket.  Staff working Commencement will also not be required to have a ticket. 

After Graduation
Faculty may submit final grades through Banner on insidePacific.
