Special Assistance

Graduates needing special accommodation should contact (618) 6502252 or by Friday, July 20, to discuss accommodation options with Commencement staff.

Guests with disabilities may be seated on the ground floor in the Vadalabene Center. Commencement staff, ushers and University staff volunteers will be available at Commencement to help guests needing accommodations. To ensure adequate seating for guests with disabilities, we ask that only the guest needing the accommodation and one other person be seated in this section. Guests with disabilities are encouraged to arrive at least 45 minutes before the start of the ceremony.

Wheelchairs will be available at Equipment Issue in the Vadalabene Center, and any guest using a wheelchair can be seated in designated areas. For the safety of all guests, aisle and walkways must be kept clear; please seek an usher to be directed to the nearest wheelchair seating area. An interpreter will be available for the deaf or hard of hearing. Guests who are hard of hearing or deaf may contact the Commencement staff at (618) 6502252 or for more information.
