Mohegan Sun Arena Policies

King’s College is required to follow the security directives of the Mohegan Sun Arena. Please refer to their Clear Bag Policy, which indicates which items are not permissible to bring inside, including purses, camera bags, and diaper bags. We encourage families to familiarize themselves with this information to make your entry into the Arena a quick and pleasant experience.

Photography and Video

King’s College hires Island Photography to take professional portraits of graduates as they receive their degree and as soon as they come off stage. Students will be provided with information about how to review proofs and purchase photos following the ceremony. Please note only professional photographers and media with appropriate credentials are allowed near the stage to take photographs or video. King’s College will record the live stream for archival purposes.

Who Can Participate

Participating in commencement activities does not automatically mean a student has graduated, as they must officially complete their degree requirements first. Generally, all students must have successfully completed their degree requirements and coursework by the end of the spring semester in May in order to participate in the spring ceremony.
