Information for the Day of Your Ceremony

CEREMONY INSTRUCTIONS

  • NO REHEARSAL WILL BE CONDUCTED FOR THIS CEREMONY.
  • In order to save the stadium parking lots for guests, we ask that participants ride with their family or park in the Dutton Avenue Parking Garage and access the stadium via the Umphrey Pedestrian Bridge.
  • Gates will open 90 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony. Participants should arrive no later than one hour before the ceremony begins and proceed directly to your assigned seat on the field.
  • Your seating assignment will be emailed to your Baylor email address a week prior to the ceremony.
  • Participants should use the Baylor Line entrance in the South Plaza of McLane Stadium

ATTIRE FOR DEGREE CANDIDATES

  • An update on the face covering requirement for Commencement: Face coverings will be required as you enter McLane Stadium, while lined up and upon exiting the stadium. You may remove your face covering when you are seated on the field, given the ceremonies are being held outdoors and you will be seated socially distanced. Also, you are allowed to briefly remove your face covering when walking across the stage for photo purposes; the stage party has been vaccinated.
  • All degree candidates will walk through metal detectors at McLane Stadium with their gowns open. The stadium clear bag policy will be in effect.
  • Participants are encouraged to dress comfortably in anticipation of warm weather. You may choose to carry your gown with you and wait until you are seated to put it on.
  • Be mindful of the shoes you wear as you will be seated on the football field. Heels are NOT recommended.
