Tickets
Please get your ticket for Commencement from your graduate. Graduates received 4 tickets for their guests to attend their ceremony at the time they purchased their cap and gown in our book store. Students need to notify us when they purchase their cap and gown if they would like to be entered into a drawing to recieve two additional tickets for guests. After cap and gown purchasing is over, we will do a drawing to distribute any remaining tickets.

ALL guests must have a ticket to attend Commencement except children ages 2 and under who will sit on an adult's lap for the entire ceremony.  We will have a classroom available near the gymnasium with live streaming for guests without a ticket.

Ceremony
Graduates should report to the Theatre 30 minutes prior to their ceremony. Guests should be seated in the Gymnasium. The Gymnasium doors will open one hour prior to each ceremony for guests to be seated. Please note that there is no room available in the gymnasium for strollers. There will be a classroom available for stroller parking but it is not monitored.

The Commencement Ceremony will be streamed live on Riverland's website at www.riverland.edu/streaming

Reception
Riverland invites graduates and their guests to join them in the Library for a Commencement Reception following each ceremony.
