About the Ceremony: Mt. SAC conducts one commencement ceremony a year, at the end of the spring semester. Fall and winter graduates are encouraged to attend the ceremony and participate in this event with spring graduates in June. Summer session prospective graduates are also invited to participate in the June ceremony.

When and Where to Arrive: Graduates should arrive for the ceremony with their caps and gowns at 9:30 am at Citizens Business Bank Arena for assembly and processional instructions.

Guest Admission and Arrival: The commencement ceremony is open to all guests of the graduates—no admission tickets are necessary. Family members and guests should be encouraged to arrive early, as there may be delays with peak-hour traffic.  No outside food or ice chests are allowed, but refreshments are available for purchase.
