The Commencement Ceremony

Seating: NO TICKETS REQUIRED. Ample seating is available in the Kesler Student Activities Center arena.

Hearing Impaired Assistance: Sign language interpreters are available by pre-arrangement. Please contact dnboatwright@taylor.edu if you will need a Sign Language Interpreter.

Entry: Doors will open at 9:00 a.m.

Photographs: A professional photograph will be taken of each graduate as he/she receives their diploma from the President, and will be provided digitally by the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations to the graduate’s Taylor University e-mail address at no charge. During the ceremony there will also be a designed photo area; however families and friends should alleviate crowding by photographing their graduate quickly and immediately exiting the photo area. For guest safety, no tripods may be set up in aisles, doorways or walkways.
