Cheel Campus Center and Cheel Arena are accessible to guests with disabilities. If your guest requires tickets for a wheel chair accessible seating area, sign language interpreter or visually impaired seating area or any other accessible accommodation these tickets will be available to request when you order your Commencement tickets online.
A special section of the Cheel Arena is being reserved for those guests using wheelchairs. One family caregiver will be permitted to sit next to the guest's wheelchair. Guests with tickets for accessible seating will need to enter the Arena using the canopied exterior door to the front entrance of Cheel Campus Center. This entrance will have a sign indicating that it is for such ticket holders.
If we are made aware that a particular graduate will have a guest needing such interpretation services, the interpreter will sign that graduate's name to the audience as well as interpreting the remarks and songs. If you have any questions or concerns regarding accommodative seating, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students participating in Commencement will be emailed information regarding ticketing procedures and will be encouraged to share the information with their guests.
A online ticket lottery will be held at the end of March in which students can try to get a couple of additional tickets based on a first come first served basis. Students will be notified of the amount of tickets they will received by April 8.
