Bag Check

The safety of CSM students, guests and employees is of the utmost importance. CSM will be conducting a bag check at the winter commencement. Please note that everyone will 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 will 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

Commencement photographs will be taken of each graduate as they cross the stage to receive their diploma. There is no obligation to purchase the photographs.
