We are excited to see you this weekend at Huskie Stadium for commencement!  A few helpful reminders as you prepare to join us. Please remember the following:


  • Wear your cap and gown to the event.  No cap and gown purchase is available on site.
  • Wear a mask as you enter and exit the stadium and while seated and when in line.
    • You may remove your mask while walking across the stage and for your official portrait.
  • Check the Commencement website for event arrival times, parking information, and Huskie Stadium rules (no spiked heels are allowed on the turf, no food, and no large bags).
  • Check the weather and dress appropriately. There are no shaded areas in the stadium.  The event will be live streamed on YouTube for those that prefer to watch it remotely.
