COMMENCEMENT INFORMATION 

General Information:  Graduation will be held Thursday, June 7th, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. in Cougar Stadium. For safety and security, school and stadium gates will remain closed to visitors during the school day and will NOT be opened to visitors until 2:00 p.m.  Please do not arrive before this time.  Due to the volume of people attending the ceremony, attendees are NOT allowed to save seats in the stands.  Stadium capacity is 3,242 (approximately 6 guests per graduate).

 

Parking Options:  General parking is available in the upper student lot, the lower student lot, Stoneybrooke, and at Saddleback College (there may be a minimal charge of $2 for a day pass).  Limited handicapped parking will be available to those who have a valid handicapped placard on a first-come first-serve basis.  After all available handicapped parking is filled; a handicap drop-off area and shuttle will be available in front of the small gym beginning at 2:30 p.m.  The shuttle will take handicapped persons and one assist person only to the stadium for seating in a special area.  Drivers and other guests must then park in the specified lots above and make their way to the general seating areas.

 

After the ceremony:  No visitors will be allowed on the field.  However, immediately following the ceremony, graduates will recess to the quad between the gym and the M-Building where they can then meet their families and pick up their diplomas.
