The 2019 Commencement Ceremony is scheduled to take place on Thursday, May 9 at 4 p.m. at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.
Like last year, the ceremony will begin with a full processional, beginning with our students, followed by faculty/staff and platform guests in full regalia.
As a reminder, faculty and staff will sit together in reserved rows directly in front of the stage.
All faculty members are asked to participate in the formal procession leading in to the ceremony. Your involvement will require that you arrive at 2 p.m. to ensure ample time for check-in, robing and receiving ceremony directions. Please remember the arena has implemented additional security measures which include metal detectors. The ceremony will begin promptly at 4 p.m.
