Graduation Day Events:

Graduation Practice (mandatory for all graduates): August 28th, Time TBD. Location TBD. All graduates planning to walk in the graduation ceremony must attend this practice. Please dress appropriately for walking across the stage. You will sit in one of two sections by program and last name. There will be signage to direct students that day and an email will go out a few days beforehand showing you which section and seat you will be sitting in. You will be guided by one of four section leaders to an assigned seat that will simulate where you will sit later that evening.

Departmental Pictures: August 29th, Time TBD. Location TBD. Please arrive at the picture area 15 minutes ahead of the schedule below (to be provided soon). Plan ahead. Allow time for finding the parking lot, traffic, lost tassels, visiting family & friends, buying snacks on the way, etc. Avoid stress on that day by being on time to this important and special event. Do not leave any personal items such as purses, gifts or Bibles in the department picture area. All items left behind will be turned in to TMU safety. Please report to the Family Center at Grace Community Church according to the following schedule (to be provided).

Graduation Reminders:

Parking: Grace Community Church has 4 parking lots. See parking lot map HERE. Encourage your guests to park in one of the 4 available parking lots. There is no charge for parking. There is a drop-off very close to the worship center in the MAIN parking lot if needed.

Guest Seating: Doors will open: time TBD. The ceremony begins at 10:00 am and will be over around 12:00 pm or shortly thereafter.

Handicapped & Disabled Seating: There is limited area available for wheelchairs to park at the end of a pew. Center isles will not be accessible to wheelchairs. There are no stairs inside the Worship Center.

Livestreaming: The university will be livestreaming the ceremony on the university’s website www.masters.edu/live, Facebook, or YouTube. You can go back and watch at your convenience.

Regalia: If you indicated that you intend to walk in the ceremony by submitting the August 2020 Graduation Questionnaire, your graduation regalia will be mailed to the address you submitted, 2-3 weeks before the ceremony. You will be given a graduation cap & gown with tassel, hood and honors medal (if earned). Please take care to prepare the gown by removing it from the bag early and either ironing it on a cool setting or hanging it out to remove the wrinkles. We want to present a dignified ceremony to our guests. Honors medallions are worn under the hoods. The instructions for wearing the hoods are in the bag the hood comes in. The tassels start out dangling on the right side of the cap and are moved to the left when instructed during the ceremony.

Post Ceremony Celebration: You may gather with friends and family outside of the Worship Center. The TMU Alumni Association will have an area set up for a photo shoot if desired.
