Bag Check

If the Spring Graduation Commencement is moving inside due to inclement weather bag checks will be performed in the PE and FA buildings. The safety of CSM students, guests and employees is of the utmost importance. CSM will be conducting a bag check at the spring commencement. Please note that everyone may be subject to a bag check before entry. We encourage you to leave large bags, diaper bags and backpacks in your vehicles or at home, as these might be subject to the bag check process at the door. This is a new security procedure and we appreciate your cooperation and patience.

Disability Services

There is a seating section for the elderly or disabled guests. Due to limited space, the college recommends that the person with the disability and one other guest sit in the accessible seating section. Additional members of your party should sit in the regular seating areas.

Graduate Photographs and Flowers

Commencement photographs will be taken of each graduate as they cross the stage to receive their diploma. A complimentary photo proof will be sent to each graduate after the ceremony.
There is no obligation to purchase the photographs.

The College Store will sell flowers for the graduates at the graduation ceremony.

Guest Information

Guests are encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes before the ceremony begins.
Tickets are required if the event is moved to the PE Building due to inclement weather. If held in the PE Building doors will be closed once the procession begins and guests will not be admitted until after the procession.
