Students should arrive no later than 5:00 pm to check in.

When you check in, you will be given a reader card. Please remember that you will need to have your reader card to hand to the reader when you walk across the stage. It’s very important not to lose this. This is the card that makes it possible for your name to scroll across the Jumbotron.

Undergraduates will check in at the arboretum.

ALL GRADUATES are required to wear official regalia (your cap and gown) for the ceremony. There are no exceptions. Your cap and gown may be purchased from the ASU bookstore.

Due to the timing of our ceremony (6:00 p.m.) please make sure that you have something to eat before you arrive.

Please do not bring any personal belongings (no backpacks) that you cannot carry on your person. There will not be a secure area to lock any personal items.

Your family and friends may arrive at Wells Fargo Arena at 5:00 p.m. They may sit in the areas designated - there is no reserved seating.
