Parking and Tickets
Parking and attendance will be free of charge with no required passes or tickets for students or guests.

Guest Seating
Guests may arrive with the graduate or just prior to the beginning of the ceremony. This is not a ticketed event, so seating is on a first come, first served basis. The earlier guests arrive, the better chance they have of getting the seats they prefer. Doors to the Greensboro Coliseum will open for seating at 1:30 pm. The doors will close promptly at 2:25 pm in order to start the graduation procession.

This is a very special day for you and your family and friends. We hope everyone enjoys the event. However, please keep in mind that small children and babies may cause a distraction during the ceremony.
