Graduation Flowers

Guest Seating & Etiquette

Tickets are not required for Commencement. Guest seating at the ceremony is on a first come, first served basis. There is no reserved general seating, and guests are respectfully requested not to save seats for others. Special seating will be provided for disabled individuals. However, due to limited space, disabled guests may be accompanied by only one non-disabled person in the disabled seating area. Guests may photograph graduates and/or certificate recipients before and after the ceremony, and from their seats during the ceremony. No air horns!

Parking for Special Mobility Guests

There is limited disabled parking available at the Oak Pavilion. If you have special mobility needs, make arrangements for transportation from the parking lot to the Oak Pavilion on the day of graduation with DSPS Office (209) 588-5130, no later than Friday, April 21, 2018.


It is permissible for students to wear flowers with academic regalia. The college will have booths, in multiple locations in the Oak Pavilion, to sell flowers for your graduates and/or certificate recipients.

Food, Drink

Water bottles are permitted but please do not bring food or drinks into the Oak Pavilion.
