- The University wants to ensure that Commencement is a dignified academic ceremony enjoyed by both graduates and guests. Please refrain from yelling, shouting, or whistling until the names of all graduates have been read.
- Graduates should not leave the ceremony floor until the appropriate time. Only platform guests, faculty, staff, and marshals will recess out. All graduates are to remain seated throughout the ceremony unless directed otherwise by the Commencement marshals or master of ceremonies.
- Gifts, such as flowers, should be given to graduates after the ceremony.
