Tickets are not required for Commencement. Graduates will have reserved seating on the floor and will process into the arena/gymnasium in order of degrees awarded. Graduates must be on time, in line, and dressed in their academic regalia; otherwise, they will not be able to participate in the graduates’ parade. For questions, please contact the Registrar’s Office at email@example.com.
PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO
King’s College hires Island Photography to take professional portraits of graduates as they receive their degree on stage from the president 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. For some, this happens at the end of the fall semester but choose to walk in the spring ceremony or in the spring or summer and choose to walk in the summer ceremony. All other 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.
