    • Fall 2016 graduates
    • Spring 2017 candidates (students must have applied for graduation by March 17, 2017)
    • Summer 2017 candidates (students must have applied for graduation by April 3, 2017)
  • Review Academic Regalia (Caps, Gowns, Tassels, and Honor Cords).

  • Graduates need to meet by 6:15pm in Building 7, second floor.

  • Tickets are required for guests. Graduates will receive a maximum of 4 tickets for their guests when they purchase their cap, gown, and tassel at the Ohlone College Bookstore by the deadline: Friday, April 28, 2017.

  • The gym will open at 5:30pm. The graduation ceremony will begin promptly at 7:00pm. Guests who arrive late will be asked to wait outside the gym until the conclusion of the processional when the doors will reopen for late-arriving guests.

  • Guests without a ticket have the option of viewing the ceremony in the Jackson Theatre in the Smith Center or watching the ceremony on a computer, tablet or smartphone. Tickets are not required for guests in the Jackson Theatre. Seating is limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis. (Map of Pathway to Overflow Seating in Jackson Theatre at the Smith Center.)

  • Graduates should leave personal belongings (purses, coats, suit jackets, etc.) with family and friends, since there is nowhere to store personal belongings during the ceremony.

  • Cell phones and pagers must be turned off (or silenced) during the ceremony—or, better yet, left outside of the gym.

  • The ceremony will end around 8:30pm.

  • ASOC is sponsoring a Graduation Reception at the Promenade by Building 7 after the ceremony. Please invite your guests to attend the reception with you.

  • Parking is free for the graduation ceremony.

  • Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the Ohlone campus.
