Our Spring Commencement Ceremonies will take place outdoors at the Riccardo Silva Stadium on our MMC campus on Saturday, April 24th and Sunday, April 25th.
The system to register for your ceremony and obtain your 3 complimentary guest tickets, is set to open on Wednesday, March 24 at 12 midnight and is set to close on Wednesday, March 31 at 11:59 p.m.
Students will receive their individual passes closer to the ceremony date.
NO additional guest tickets will be distributed as we have a strict capacity limit in respect of CDC guidelines.
It is important to note that all registrations and ticket transactions are FINAL. Ceremony transfers will NOT be allowed.

When the system opens, all Saturday timeslots will be open. The first time slot (9:30 a.m.) will ONLY be for graduate degree students. There will be a 2:00 p.m. and a 6:30 p.m. timeslot that will open up for April 24th. Once those ceremonies are at capacity (1,000 graduates per ceremony), we will proceed with opening additional timeslots for Sunday, April 25th, one at a time, based on demand (9:30 a.m., 2:00 p.m., and 6:30 p.m.). Please note, there is no one specific ceremony for your college. All ceremonies will be mixed.
Additionally, please note due to Covid restrictions, the program has been significantly modified for safety reasons. Graduates will be seated first-come, first-served, as they arrive. All graduates will have the opportunity to walk across the stage as their name is called, but there will be no stopping, no handshaking, no hooding, and no photo-op on stage. Furthermore, in the event of inclement weather during the ceremony, the President will make the decision to stop the ceremony, ask all graduates to rise for the final conferral of degrees, and then all attendees are to exit the field and/or stands.
Because we will be hosting our ceremony on the football field, absolutely NO heels will be permitted (only wedges). You will not be allowed on the field if you are wearing heels. No food or drinks will be allowed on the field as well with the exception of bottled water.
We will be sending out the ticket system link prior to opening.
All commencement events will adhere to the Panthers Protecting Panthers plan to ensure everyone’s health and safety. This means everyone attending must wear a face covering, stay physically distanced and wash hands often or use hand sanitizer. Everyone attending is strongly encouraged to use the P3 app.
Please see the Spring 2021 Commencement document explaining all of the Commencement events for this semester.
We look forward to celebrating you at all of our Commencement Events this semester!
