Wolstein Center
In the event of a forecast of rain, or weather that may prohibit holding the commencement ceremony outdoors on JCU’s Quadrangle, the ceremony will be moved to the Wolstein Center at Cleveland State University in Downtown Cleveland.  The schedule for Sunday, however, will remain the same, with the commencement ceremony beginning at 11 a.m.

The official physical address of the Wolstein Center is:
2000 Prospect Avenue
Cleveland, OH 44115.

The Wolstein Center is ADA accessible.  You can access the Wolstein Center website at
