In keeping with mitigation guidelines required for all events held in Hulman Center, all students participating in commencement, and their guests, will be required to wear a face-covering over their nose and mouth.  Students must complete the daily health assessment, sent to them via their Sycamores email account, and must receive a green checkmark to participate in the ceremony.  Guests will not be admitted to Hulman Center without a ticket, and should not attend if they feel ill.
