Accessibility for Guests
Accessible Parking :

The Graduate School Ceremony and Undergraduate Ceremony

For individuals with officially issued state handicap parking permits, there are reserved spaces in the Convocation Parking Lots (B/E). Please be certain that your DMV issued Handicap Permit is displayed and visible as cadets will ticket those parking in the accessible spaces without it.


Accessible Seating:

For both the Graduate Ceremony and Undergraduate Ceremony

A reserved area is available for persons with a mobility impairment or those using a wheelchair. Due to the large number of people attending the ceremonies and limited space in the venues, seating in the reserved area is only available for the person who needs the assistance and one accompanying guest or attendant. Other guests in the party will need to sit in the nonreserved areas. It is not necessary to contact us in advance with seating needs to use these reserved seats. The university does not provide wheelchairs. 

Interpreter Services

American Sign Language services for hearing impaired individuals are available upon request. Please inform us of your need at least 3 weeks prior to Commencement by calling (540) 568-7787 or emailing University Events.

All requests for disability accommodations will be considered on a case-by-case basis. In order to facilitate the appropriate planning and provision of accommodations, please make your requests at least 3 weeks prior to Commencement by contacting us at (540) 568-7787 or by emailing University Events. Please understand that we may not be able to guarantee consideration of accommodations requested after that date.
