Following both commencement ceremonies, a reception for graduates and guests will be held in the Chuckwagon Cafe. Everyone is invited to attend the receptions.


Line-up will take place in the auxiliary gym of the Event Center, beginning one hour before each ceremony. Graduates will pick up their reader card and line up for the procession. During the ceremony, reader cards are used to announce graduate names as they cross the stage. Please leave personal items and valuables with family or friends.


Photos of graduates will be taken during each ceremony. The reader cards will be used by the photographer to send the photo proof to the graduates with pricing and order information. Graduates will need to add an e-mail address to the reader card, or other contact information, for the photographers to reach out to them.


Commencement practice will take place on May 9, 2024 at noon in the Bank of Colorado Event Center.
