Frequently Asked Questions
When and where do I pick up tickets for May graduation?
Tickets will be distributed at graduation rehearsal.
How do I get seating for a family member in a wheelchair?
Contact the Disability Services Coordinator at 502.272.8480 to reserve seating.
I have a cap and gown from my undergraduate degree; can I wear that instead of ordering new for my masters?
The graduation apparel for each degree level is slightly different. In order to have consistency in appearance for our graduates and to insure that all students have the apparel appropriate to the degree they are receiving. The cost of the apparel is included in the graduation fee.
Can we take pictures at Graduation?
Because increased activity near the stage area impedes the flow of commencement, guests will not be allowed to approach the stage to take photographs. Professional photographers will be taking each graduate’s photograph as he/she receives his/her diploma. These will be available for review and purchase online at www.orderyourphoto.com. Guests are welcome to take pictures from their seats. Students will also have an opportunity to have our professional photographer take their photo in graduation cap and gown at the Graduation Fair.
How long does commencement last?
The average for May is about 2 ½ hours. In December our Commencement averages about 1 ½ hours.
