Commencement

Rain Plans & Tickets

Commencement 2019 Rain Tickets

Commencement is a wonderful celebration and culmination of students’ time at John Carroll. The administration understands how important it is for students to end their time at John Carroll by graduating on the campus that has played a pivotal role in their lives. If inclement weather is predicted for Commencement weekend, one or both of the ceremonies may move indoors. If this is the case, the ceremonies will be ticketed due to limited seating capacity in the venues. Each graduate will be limited to three guest tickets. All ceremonies will then be streamed in venues across campus for other guests to view. Tickets will only be required if the ceremonies must move indoors.  Seating will not be ticketed if the ceremonies are outside on Hamlin Quad. An announcement regarding the location for each ceremony will be made by 12 p.m. on Friday, May 17.
