Dear Graduates:

Congratulations! The Vernon College Administration and Office of Admissions and Records want to celebrate your accomplishments.  We are working together to plan a great commencement ceremony.  Please be aware and share with your guests that parking will be limited due to the closure of several parking lots for the construction of the new hotel.  Please plan to arrive early.  Graduates will need to park in the south parking lot of the MPEC - Ray Clymer Exhibit Hall (separate building adjacent to the Wichita Falls Kay Yeager Coliseum). Look for the blue Vernon College flags.  

The Wichita Falls Kay Yeager Coliseum doors will open for guests at 9:30 a.m. for the 10:30 a.m. ceremony.  Graduates should arrive no later 9:00 a.m.  Report to the MPEC - Ray Clymer Exhibit Hall A for line up.  (NOTE: graduates who arrive late, after the lines have moved to the coliseum, will be seated at the back and will cross the stage in that order, instead of sitting with others in the same programs.)

Family members and guests will not be allowed in the graduate line up area and should proceed to the Wichita Falls Kay Yeager Coliseum.  As commencement draws a large audience, elderly persons and others who need special assistance should plan to arrive as early as possible.  Graduates will not be limited to a number of guests.  We anticipate the ceremony will last about two hours.  After the recessional, graduates will proceed outside to meet family and guests.

Regalia: You can pick up your cap and gown in the bookstore.  The cap and gown are available at NO CHARGE!  Diploma frames and invitations are also available for purchase.  Please stop by the bookstore at either Century City or Vernon.  They will be glad to help you with all your graduation needs.

Dress: All graduates will wear a cap and gown.  All tassels should be worn on the right and will be shifted to the left together.  Please remember that there will be no secure place to leave valuables during the ceremony.  Pin car keys to the inside of the gown if necessary.

Decoration of Mortar Boards (Caps): Decorations must adhere "flat" to the top (square portion) of the mortar board.  Decorations are not to be placed anywhere beneath the top of the mortar board, neither attached to the cap portion supporting it, nor dangling from any part of the mortar board.
