Important Information for Graduating Students

All students eligible for the Spring 2022 commencement are invited to participate in the May 2022 commencement ceremony.

Guests of graduates who are participating in the in-person Commencement ceremony on May 6 must present guest tickets for entry into Cherry Hills Community Church.

Graduates should use the entrance near Dixon Chapel (right side of the building from the main parking lot) and check in at the atrium inside the church. We encourage guests to drop off graduating students for check-in. Please review this map for further instructions. Students should wear their caps and gowns to the ceremony. Master’s and Doctoral students should wear their hoods to the ceremony.

Students check-in at the following times:
