The Alabama Theatre will open for guests beginning at 12:30 pm. Each guest, including children, will need to have a ticket to enter. All graduates will still need to report to the large brown doors on 18th Street at 11:00 to check in.

Graduation Application Process and Deadlines

Students should apply the term prior to the term they plan to graduate so that the Graduation Office will have time to communicate with them about courses needed for graduation.
