Students participating in the Saturday morning ceremony (School of Business and School of Science and Mathematics) should arrive at 8:45 a.m.; those in the Saturday afternoon ceremony (School of Humanities and Social Sciences and School of Language, Cultures and World Affairs) should arrive at 12:45 p.m., and those participating in the Friday afternoon Ceremony (The Graduate School, School of the Arts, School of Education, Health, and Human Performance, and School of Professional Studies) should arrive at 3:45 p.m. The inclement weather location is TD Arena.

After each rehearsal, candidates will have an opportunity to speak with the appropriate staff/faculty member regarding the pronunciation of their names.
